Hot off the graphic card, I got a couple more glitch screenshots to work with in the last few days. Still no way to predict when it will happen, but it seems to happen when the operating system tries to play video in a preview pane or open a helper window for an application. #10,

I got a little obsessed last night, so let’s have another glitch video. And the average:

Hopefully I’m not giving myself airs to beat Moses, but the recent passing of Walter de Maria made me remember the small homage to him I made at the Vermont Studio Center in 2010. Using a GPS unit to record my path, I traced out a Random Kilometer in the playing fields (and adjoining forests)
