I tried making a toy visualization that "red shifted" people as they moved toward or away from the camera. Several wrong calculations and integer overflows later, I ended up with a flickering grayscale mess, pictured.
I eventually fixed the math errors, and discovered it wasn't nearly as fun as my glitched-out art, so I took my piece in that direction instead. All of my best art starts as a mistake.
I installed it on Governor's Island in the basement of Fort Jay, a cavernous pitch-black bunker perfect for projecting a light show. Glitch @ Figment NYC 2017
