Glitch is a↾ault in a system, a swerve in a flow of data, a deÂ ion from the script.

Extending John Cage’s aesthetics of “non-intention,” the glitch artist works with the tics, flourishes, and hesitations of media and mediation. Digital and electronic media provide built-in capacities for blunder, of course, but there are glitches in material and analog systems as well: a finger in the frame, happy/unhappy accidents, spoiled negatives, miscalculations (of resources, of timing), and general system breakdowns. Emerging from the interface, glitch makes of itself an indeterminate determination, an artefact of artefaction.
