Carlos Antonio Piñón

Carlos Antonio Piñón is a Chicago-born artist and writer seeking to destroy the sentence. His work has been featured in several recycle bins throughout the city, most often with a better draft already in progress.

Carlos's biggest secret is that he has no idea how to write. Like no idea. He just kind of smashes the keys on his laptop hoping they form complete sentences. He wrote his last essay by throwing darts at a dictionary.

Reinterpretations of Human Character. 2015. Databending Glitch Images.

This series of glitch sketches was born out of my intial reserach during SAIC's 150th year celebration. Assigned the year 1896, I combed through publications produced by the Art Institute of Chicago from that year until I found a book titled "Portraits and Picutres." This turned an exhibition book containing works by August Franzen.

Knowing I had wanted to work with my glitch technique, I chose of Franzen's works from the "Interpretations of Human Character" series to manipulate, but after being unable to find images of those works online, I settled for picking any image I found on Google after searching the titles of Franzen's pieces.

Though ulimately, I took my project in a different direction with Skyview, I ended up coming back to the initial idea of finding my muse in books and glitches in Missteps and Misprints.
