i love artifacts in webcams

My brother shared with me the “Swan Cam” from Schaumburg, Illinois (link fixed 10/2012). During the day you can see some park where I guess swans hang out. But at night is when the real magic begins. I love the compressed data artifacting that goes on at night from this webcam. It’s a visual delight. I took a screen capture of it and completely blew out the detail with the brightness/contrast tool in Photoshop. It makes for a fun texture. Above is the image with a bit of cropping.

It’s like.. a rainbow vomited on a swan.

Digital artifacts are much more lively than analog noise or static.
