Glitch Art

“Glitch art is the aestheticization of digital or analog errors, such as artifacts and other “bugs”, by either corrupting digital code/data or by physically manipulating electronic devices “ -Wikipedia.

This definition doesn’t suggest that accidental glitches are art, but I suppose in a Duchampian sense, if I name it art, it is art. This photograph was a straightforward Jpeg until I did something to it – I wish I could remember what.

But what a wonderful fluke. It gives the building a wildness it clearly needs. It’s the Newburn flats by Frederick Romberg, master architect of functionaist Modernism in Melbourne, a sober style that really needs to let it’s hair down.
