A databent or glitched photo of two rappers holding microphones and a crowd dancing at their concert that took place inside a rock climbing gym.

As a photographer and videographer I've explored other subgenres, such as, databending or datamoshing. Databending is the manipulation of one medium using a software that's not meant to edit that medium. So for example, I databend my photos using Audacity, an audio editing software.

The photos below are the result of databending. The video was datamoshed in a software called Avidemux. I removed the p-frames causing the frames to blend together and create a glitch effect.
