Sure you can toss a 99 cent app on your phone and snap exceptionally broken photos until you forever break glitch art (nyuk nyuk) but there is something unpredictably charming about working with a real broken camera. Over the years I have been tinkering (as I do) with a number of different digital cameras & DSLRs. The goal is to settle upon a model with a mod stable enough to release. Digital cameras pose some challenges as they are lacking any room for controls & not built with repairs in mind (a number of cameras have died at the hands of just trying to open them). Despite this I think I’ve settled upon both a design and a camera that may be headed your way some time soon. While it might be a little while before any release date is set in stone it is on the front burner.
Here is a glimpse at some recent flicks from the BPMC glitch camera prototype. Thanks for looking.
