Photoshop: Used various filters and upped the contrast of the photo.
ALSO Photoshop: Added gradient layers and changed the hue and saturation of the images. Also warped the layers to distort the image.
Audacity: Added reverse and echo filters
[Describe how this process of collective image creation and decomposition creates a glitch transformation.]
As a glitch can be defined as something that is horrendous, malfunctioning or corrupted, the photo undergoes an unusual and unprecedented transformation. The idea of using a body part in an image creates an even more disturbing and unwanted sense of distorting something in its natural state, akin to the gruesomeness of a limb being twisted off or something 🙂 Thus, a glitch transformation of the original image is born through manipulation of the text in the files.
[How is each transformation creating a new form of its precursor?]
Each transformation sees an additional layer of distortion to the picture. The original pixels still exist somewhere in the photo, but its placement and relativism to the other pixels have changed, resulting in an entirely new visual that borders closer and closer to unrecognisable.
