Digital Decay, End, Michael Kowalczyk Photography

The art of data corruption in digital photographs.

The idea for the series came after an unexpected power outage caused my image files to be saved incorrectly on the ssd. Upon reopening, the affected photos revealed a kaleidoscope of colorful anomalies, glitches, and graphic patterns.

The series is an exploration of serendipity and reflects on the fragile balance between integrity and decay in an increasingly digital world.

Those who like to explore more of this kind of altered digital art I recommend looking at Sabato Visconti´s Glitch Photography Projects.
