October Wallpaper by endosage October Wallpaper by endosage
This month, the theme is Glitch Art, and being that it's October, I felt it should be a little scary or unsettling.

With this wallpaper, I didn't just want to focus on one image because I feel that glitches are best experienced in motion. Sure, you can take a still and create a beautiful image, but a lot of what makes the style interesting to me is all the stuff in-between — the stuff of milliseconds and missed moments. Unless they're right there with you, this is a hard experience to share with other people.

So I built something. October's wallpaper is interactive glitch art.

It's 100% compatible with Firefox and Chrome, but fullscreen freezes Safari (don't click the bottom right date) and IE most likely will work (v9+), but I wouldn't be surprised if it's a little weird. Mobile is out completely. Also, if you're prone to light-triggered seizures, I'll have to ask that you not open the link.

You can find it here. Hover the date in the bottom right corner until it's all red for info on what to do.

In addition to that, I've also included the usual round of wallpapers, which you can find at the links below. They were all generated individually and as such, are all different.

Not that pretty tho :|
Too much glitch, could have bee nicer to look at if it had less black thingies.

Nevertheless, I'm surprised that has an iPad version.

I kinda like that it's not pretty, haha. It's a horror themed wallpaper!

... Totally imagining Freddy Krueger in a dress & makeup... just doesn't work, haha!

Don't suppose you could reply to me with the same thumbs, so I can catch it in my message center?

Nope: Can't get it to trigger Show Images mode at all. Probably because it's being embedded by private ID, and there's an exception in the code to skip thumb attaching for unpublished items.

(Which doesn't explain how OP got it to show...)
