On Datamoshing

I've seen a few of these videos before I realized it's a fast growing artform. I love it: the strange feelings it gives seeing glitches made into a new piece of work; the mix of past--be it old video footage (my current favorite) or the exploitation of what was once a common error in an earlier Internet and earlier browsers--and the obscure. Have a look. (Warning: the video below really shouldn't be seen by children. Obviously--from the still--there is some sexual content, but the visual effects themselves would have freaked a younger Steven Breyak. (I was pretty sensitive.))

It's like visual hip-hop. With a lot of psychedelics going on. If you like, check out Youtube, and please share some thoughts here.
