MADMEN Bittorrent Edition

MADMEN Bittorrent Edition is a video

From artist Conor McGarrigle comes fantastic glitch video art is made from an episode of Mad Men incompletely downloaded from the internet via bittorrent.

From the description:

Video comprising one episode of Madmen incompletely downloaded from the internet via bittorrent. The video has been linearly edited, no digital effects were used and all jump cuts and repeats are in the corrupted file.

The video captures an episode of the popular TV show in the act of being shared by thousands of users on bittorent. The video simultaneously acts as a visualisation of bittorrent traffic and the practice of filesharing and is an aesthetically beautiful by product of the bittorrent process as the pieces of the original file are rearranged and reconfigured into a new transitory in-between state.

It also avoids infringing the copyright of Madmen as it is incomplete.
