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’.

“Does glitch art need a clause that restricts it from non-electrical modes of production? If so, can we print it? Can we seminate it through society? If your answer is ‘no’, where do you draw the line in the sand? If your answer is ‘yes’, looking like a glitch is not enough, it needs to have the possibility of being a glitch (for whatever that that means).” /Matthew Austin
