Text EditPosters

This is a poster series based on my experimentation with using TextEdit as a tool to edit images.

JPEG images were opened as a text file, which produces a long page of code. This code was then re-arranged, altering the colour and position of certain parts of the image. This type of image manipulation is sometimes referred to as data-bending, however rather than making glitchy looking images, I applied this technique to a simple circle graph image, with the intent of making new patterns, shapes and compositions with the simple black lines of the circle.

The posters came about after I re-designed a font for a couple of friends' website, font-dilettant.ch.
We began to speak of my font as a "remix"of their original font, and began thinking of poster ideas to promote the two typefaces. It was at this point that we began discussing the idea of "remixing" images using the data bending technique, to compliment



the "remixed" type. Eventually this idea was abandoned in favour of another more suitable outcome, it was at this point that I continued experimenting with the technique, simply out of curiosity, just to see what kind of results I could get.
