My Love Story w/ ASCII
I discovered the ASCII GLITCH technique back in 2010 and was inspired to produce graphics utilizing the online media like Facebook, twitter, Google+ - by simple action of repetition to create ASCII Graphic Glitch Art.
While working on an M.A. degree in Multimedia at California State University, I felt the need that would allow visual communication using graphics. Moreover, as an eco-artist and eco-activist, I felt a great need to have a way of producing graphics, to save paper, ink, paint, monthly studio rent, and storage space for the artwork I created.
However, I have the daily need to create graphics, without consuming expensive art supplies by adding to overall environmental pollution.
When I first came across GLITCH in 2010, I finally felt that I had found a simple way in online environment to create and share my artwork and graphic designs instantly. Using the simple ASCII characters became a perfect tool for me to create patterns, which have an architectural nature with just very limited forms producing challenging and sophisticated looking designs.
Although challenging sometimes to reinvent and come out with new designs with the repetition action, it is also became a great fun, using the social media walls as an amusing playground and as my canvas.
I truly fell in love with my daily activity, and spent hours pushing myself to reinvent new designs and possibilities while exploring the simple tool of ASCII.
Since then, I self published my ASCII Graphic Glitch Art book, which was transformed info a fashion and mini techno video traveling worldwide from London to Canada, Brazil and California.The Book ASCII Graphic Glitch Art volume#1 presents and documents more then 350 pages of graphics created using simple text, ASCII characters and keyboard only on facebook walls as if it was my canvas.
Furthermore, I also found a whole new community of Net artists, making new friends from around the globe who share my interest and connecting with new colleagues in more engaging and collaborative manner.
