Broad Vision 2013

So I've been taking part for the 2nd time in a row at Broad vision collaborative project and I'm really happy I decided to do so!

The project is expanding more and more each year, this time gaining a wide recognition from
The Guardian http://www.guardian.co.uk/education/2013/mar/19/art-students-find-beauty-in-science
Welcome Collection Gallery http://www.wellcomecollection.org/
The Art of Science blog http://theartsofscience.com/2013/03/04/broad-vision-2-book-launch/
and GV Art Gallery.

I've been involved in some great workshops this year, working with Color Science experiments, Photograms, Illustration and transmitting sound through bananas and pencil drawings using an amazing little gadget called makemakey.

What made the biggest impression for me though was a conversation we had with students and stuff from Imaging Science course at the University of Westminster on Steganography; term used to describe the act hiding data within other data (images, audio files etc).

Data in this case refers to the codes used to formulate an image on a machine. It's a series of numbers and letters that translates to color, light, shape, size etc.

Glich Art was one way of manipulating such data.

What was also interesting, was the way you could glitch audio files by transforming them into RAW files and opening them on Photoshop.

What I thought would be even more interesting is to embed data from audio into image files and vice versa. Ways to achieve this is by using programs such as Processing and MatLab.

Some of my first practise examples of coding at Processing
