The Glitch

This is nothing new in the horizon, but given that my Skype conversation last night was cut off by a bad connection *again*, there is still some room to explore Glitch aesthetics. As long as there are terrible Internet connections we will still need to live with web livecasts that hop along with skippy sound. This book is a compilaiton of works which incorporate the glitch and seem to lead to a path where we can critique what I would call the ‘Glitch Aesthetic’, the aesthetic of the imperfect image, the state of things before they are corrected in Photoshop or discarded altogether for their unsuitability. The aesthetic of the defective, the unwanted, the imperfect.  The book Glitch:Designing Imperfections explores this further.
