Here’s a shot of what Photoshop can spit out (if you want) when it crashes. At 8pt font, it fills 6 pages. I could see a series of these in some trendy Soho gallery. You look at it and it has that feeling of half-Matrix movie; and half “it means something” from Close Encounters. At least that’s what I get from it. (Editors note: Dave wants to make sure that PC users realize that this isn’t something that appears on the screen when a program crashes – but you can access this information if you look at the file that Microsoft would like you to send them when you get a crash. Furthermore, nothing wrong with Photoshop, it just crashes after I use Lightroom 3).
I’ve been contacted by a government agency which plans to use this pattern for wallpaper as a means of extracting confessions.
