Within the artistic realm, there is the potential for manipulation, damage, decay, or loss to be exhibited as a creative process. This creation/damage itself occurs both because of, and in spite of, human interaction. The resulting artwork emerges from the collaboration between the disruptor of data and the reorganizer/interpreter of information.
By reassessing the relationship between the disruptor and the organizer, degradation can be considered a constructive process. The traditionally desired purity of data transmission and transfer, though experienced, becomes less preferable. Noise then becomes a tool of creative expression.
