Decim8 This with Kris Collins
We’ve changed things up over on @Decim8nday!
Instead of Decim8ing your own photo, we are now selecting guest Decim8ors to submit a raw image to Decim8 every week.
The idea is to screenshot the image and process through as many effects as you like. The image will be posted on Sunday and everyone will have a chance to tag their Decim8ed image by Tuesday, 9 am PST.
We will announce the top 3 images here and on Instagram every Wednesday – picked by our guest Decim8or.
This week we are kicking things off with the cr8or himself, Kris Collins a.k.a @movax!
Here’s Kris’ original photo:
And here are Kris’ selections:
I loved this result because it speaks so much about what the glitch thing is all about.. Totally transforming the source material into something completely different and yet still interesting. We went from a warm, glowing, hard-edged object to a round, cool, organic looking shape. Plus this image would look cool as hell for a fabric print for the next level of glitch-fashionistas out there. Honorable mentions to @stellalipschitz and @laurikeiko for their wild images that would make killer patterns for stage wear for MIA.
A legit contest should come from a sampling of the populace, so this image is a winner due to the fact it got the most likes (except for the image by @bridgettesxo - but she’s involved in creating the contest, so she had to be eliminated.. Sorry Bridgette, we’ve got to avoid corruption in important matters such as these!) But in addition to the fact it got the most likes, I enjoyed how this image retained the glowy, architectural properties of the original while introducing glitches that totally worked with it. Another honorable mention in this style was the image by @anto29860.
This image totally reminded me of some kind of abstract cybernetic worm from a Sega Genesis game or something.. Pretty much hitting on all my glitch-art pleasure points! Working with L225 to nice effect. Similarly, I was also digging some of the L225 effects being done by @busylittle1way.
The cr8ors of Decim8nday and I thank you again, Kris!
Stay tuned next week as we bring in another another guest Decim8or – cr8 & Decim8!
