I'm interested in how we outsource various choices in our life to digital processes, from which article to read to which movie to watch.  For this project I used my phone, computer and existing computer image compression programs to help me choose how to "arrange"  flowers and decide a palette for a series of paintings of flower arrangements. 

The process to make these includes painting a flower arrangement, taking a digital photograph, and then databending that image file and then painting from the databent image. 

Painting itself is a type of databending, so when I paint from the bent image, I am adding an additional layer corruption / improvement to the information.
