Based on a true story. Game photography of virtual spaces created in “The Life Stage: Virtual House” (1993) on an emulated 3DO console; composited with various glitch art works from 2011-2023; and intertitles made in Deluxe Paint IV on an emulated Amiga A1200 computer. Composited glitch art works include JPEG databending, ZMBV (Zip Motion Blocks Video) codec databending, WebM (VP8 codec) databending, game corruption, and other processes.

Sabato Visconti is a Brazilian new media artist and photographer based in Western Massachusetts whose work centers around glitch and post- photography. Sabato began experimenting with glitch in 2011 by databending the source code of photographic image formats. Since these initial experiments, their work has sought to interrogate the materiality and asymmetries of both obsolete and emerging imaging practices as they become absorbed by digital processes, online networks, and machine intelligence.
