Awesome collection of DIY video-glitch hardware


The “tools” section of media artist Karl Klomp’s website documents an impressive amount of bent, hacked and homebrew hardware for video manipulation. Devices such as the Failter (seen above)series go through a number of incarnations while Karl experiments with different hardware and uncovers its glitch-ability. The retro-simple feel of the enclosures give give it all a nicely ‘scientific’ almost medical feel. Be sure to check out his device gallery/ project list for more examples. Thanks to Becky for pointing this one out!

    I’ve spent a lot of time as a TV broadcast engineer over the last thirty-five years trying to correct video distortion. Silly me.
