Orixas dancer

In yoruba dance, a religion as old as humanity, you represent the orixas, the gods, through dance. Every move has an origin , for example, when you sway the long skirt you represent waves and the goddess of sea, when you wave your arm over your head with rage you represent the god of war waving a machete cutting through enemies, you represent the moving over a hypnotic drums and with all the energy of the represented gods you become them, they say they went down to earth in your body.

I want to share you this illustration that I love and I've made it inspired by "art glitch". This kind of images are based on images errors, corrupted files by program failure or viruses and damaged jpgs. I found interesting this images as a new type of abstract art, but mixed with actual technology. This corrupted images have vibrant colors and motion. I think that there are two trends of glitchs: some are modern based on digital images, others are glitches based on the old VHS damaged tapes, those second ones have a nostalgia feeling and are often related with the "vaporwave" nostalgia aesthetics. The tube TV screens works mixing light beams on colored dots on the glass, red, green and blue (RGB), when the screen is damaged it usually can't mix well this beams creating errors on the colors. The "broken" images can be a result of damage in the VHS tapes, and in old cable channels, a poor signal or an encoded channel (that ones you had to pay for see :D) used to be seen with inverse colors and broken images too.
