glitch theory


  • A visual glitch is definable by a set of aesthetic characteristics (Moradi, 2004).
  • A visual glitch is a break from a predefined flow (Menkman, 2011).
  • A visual glitch is that which is generated by a ‘glitch technique’.

FORM REFLECTING CONTENT: A Phenomenological Approach to Phenomenology.

Is art inherently a phenomenological approach to life? Art is an anarchical approach to the creation of theory. I am a comment not an answer. Answer is always question as of so far. So far so good it would seem.

every sensible quality is fully an object only in the context of universal reflection
tactile is not spatial because of its scope (but also sight has limited scope)
sight (senses) also convey material qualities
