The Art of PNG Glitch


Documentary, Programming codes [Japan]

This artwork displays the entire range of possible glitches in PNG (Portable Network Graphics) files. The word “glitch” refers to defective computer data or a state in which a malfunction occurs but the data can still be accessed. Despite PNG’s 20-year history, the fact that it can be used to produce glitches and other effects was not widely known. The artist published all of his findings on the Internet.
