Realigning My Thoughts On Jasper Johns by JK Keller



"Realigning My Thoughts On Jasper Johns" by JK Keller is a great glitched work which is  part of an ongoing exhibition at Fach & Asendorf Gallery where you can see the project presented in a 9 screen grid and adjust the volumes and video, see here

JK Keller told us interesting info about the amazing distorted process;
"The original video is Simpsons season 10, episode 19, "Mom and Pop Art". I ripped all the frames, then used software to turn the ripped images into vectors. Then I processed the files through Illustrator using the default Alignment & Distribution tools (23 different combinations). The resulting files were then brought back together for the 23 final videos. " See more;

"With the audio, I used a similar process, making a spectrogram image of the audio from each cut in the episode. Then I applied a variety of processes to the image to mimic the alignment/distribution used. Then took the resulting image and turned it back into audio.
The project is intended to be shown as an installation of a 9 screen grid. Viewers would be able to adjust dials and switches to adjust volumes & video sources to create their own juxtapositions of the 23 videos."

"Interested in the incorrect use of default software tools and how they can be used to generate new forms, and the absurdity that results between default digital manipulation and purposeful manual influence." - JK Keller

The following video is meant as an introduction to the project.
