Inspired by glitch art, symbolism, writers like H.P. Lovecraft, and the Internet, Italian artist Giacomo Carmagnola explores classic and historical imagery through a warped digital lens. Some of his reimaginings are subtle, as in the case of a small boat traversing the open sea, while others render human figures and faces into nightmarish glitch-ridden landscapes. Carmagnola, who we first spotted on Scene 360, seems to be fascinated by forces of nature — things that cannot be controlled, like lava, fire, and amusingly, the bloody elevator scene in Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining. The a closer look in our gallery.
