I Am A Mistake

About

I Am a Mistake is an investigation into digital glitch for which I partnered with a classmate. We both have a roll in the ‘split personality’ theme we chose as human metaphor of a glitch. The outcome of a series of studies and researches is a short movie in which both personalities of the main character are visible. RGBD Toolkit is open source software we used to render the character’s mental struggle in the form of a digital glitch with the use of a camera and a Kinect. A wireframe is rendered by the software to create an extra layer of depth in the video. By purposefully ignoring the instructions of calibrating the two devices we created a glitch.
