Look Behind

(About this image) Look Behind - Analog treated glitch art

Edited Amiga originalFor this piece I subjected the image to a 3 step process. Starting in Photoshop, I built a displacement map from the original to produce the distorted, corrupted feel. Secondly, the image was converted to a format usable by a 1980’s Commodore Amiga computer. It was then dithered and recolored in 4096 colors by the vintage machine. Lastly, the image was display on a 14in CRT monitor, re photographed and imported back onto a modern Mac. For a comparison, the inline image attached is a direct save from the Amiga. Notice how small the dimensions are, this a full sized image from a 30 year old computer!

      It’s a woman with her arm stretched up in the air. I think I went a little too abstract with this photo 🙂 But I’m glad you like it!

    You are just “way beyond me,” Will, with how you accomplished this, but kudos for the effort and end result!
