Corrupt.epub by Benjamin Gaulon 

We have already seen some glitch projects involving the Kindle, most notably ‘56 Broken Kindle Screens’ by Sebastian Schmieg which was a print-on-demand / ebook of photographs of broken Kindle screens, and KindleGlitched by Benjamin Gaulon which was a collection of physical Kindles presented as readymade art.

Benjamin has created another Kindle glitch project, one which lets you corrupt any .epub file:

Corrupt.epub is an online data corruption software allowing users to load and glitch electronic books (epub format aka electronic publication). Following the project KindleGlitched [Hardware Glitch], KindleGlitcher corrupt electronic publications on a software level [Data Bending].

Fom this page: kindleglitcher.benjamingaulon.com you can upload and corrupt an EPUB file (Max 2Mbyte, NOTE: Corruption can take a really long time, 5 minutes is nothing! Check the log of your epub to see how far it is). The last 3 uploaded books are available for download on the project page.

This project was commissioned by Jeu De Paume for the online exhibition “Erreur d’impression. Publier à l’ère du numérique” at Le jeu de Paume (Paris) 2012, curated by Alessandro Ludovico.
