Buddha Variations

Buddha Variations 1

Buddha Variations 2

Buddha Variations 3

Buddha Variations 4

I made these a few weeks ago. I've been experimenting with manipulating original photos and exploring randomness within these manipulations. These started as a photo of a buddha statue I shot in the Art Institute of Chicago a couple of years ago. It was manipulated in various ways, including making about a dozen glitch versions of it. Each of these variations is a blend of 2-4 different glitch versions, along with other color and layer effects. They're also not as random as they might look. In a couple of these pieces, some of the glitch effect was made by hand.

I ended up with four variations mainly because I couldn't decide which one I liked the best, although at this moment, I'm leaning towards #2 and #4.
