The Glitch Art of Phillip Mcconnell 

I am a Glitch Artist with a focus on abstract, surrealist digital art and a photographer whose concentration is in highlighting the human condition and the different macro/micro concepts of nature.~Phillip Mcconnell To create my art I blend different aspects of photography (landscape, portrait, urban, nature and macro) with different concepts of Glitch Art (VHS, aesthetic, vapor wave) to create something new out of something broken. Glitch art is the aestheticization of digital or analog errors, such as artifacts and other “bugs”, by either corrupting digital code/data or by physically manipulating electronic devices. Although Glitch Art is a relatively new underground digital art form; the concept of Glitch Art has existed since 1962, and was born out of dada movement of the sixties.With almost everything in photography being digital it leads the mind to wonder what can really be done when pushed a step further. As technology advances, more and more everyday pushing the boundary of what the mind can create is literally at your fingertips. Alchemy is the transformation of matter either from one state to another or from one substance to another. By bending and manipulating the raw data or code of a picture, I essentially corrupt the original picture by breaking it down to its most basic form and bend it to create something new.
