UCNV is an artist and programmer based in Kyoto. His artistic career started by researching glitches. Over time, he has developed numerous programs that damage image and video files which he has released open source. While he has become known as a glitch artist, to him, the glitch is still nothing more than a means to actualize his research into the material specifics of digital media.
In his essay UCNV reflects on images existing in a 'supercritical state'.
