Ever late to the party I just found out about a type of visual art called 'glitch art' or 'data bending.'
In case you are unaware of this type of art read about it here.
I haven't seen any really impressive examples, to me it just seems like using a filter to modify an image, one that can be fairly dramatic, but a filter nonetheless. It might be cool to try with a piece of original art, but using a stock photo is totally n00b, imo.
Thoughts on data bending art?
