A “glitch” usually fixes itself in the amount of time it takes for it to be noticed in the first place, whether as a scrambled cable television delay, a page-loading error on an internet browser or a jumble of pixels on an ATM interface.
Glitch: Designing Imperfection consists of over 200 glitch images grabbed, composed and provoked by artists who present these complex fragments of color and lines as a thought-provoking aesthetic. Interviews with Angela Lorenz, Johnny Rogers, Kim Cascone, Ant Scott and O.K. Parking, as well as the introductory essays by Per Platou and Iman Moradi, create a fascinating context for approaching these jarringly compelling visuals.
Glitch captures the fact that no one can deliberately make a mistake, although mistakes are often the greatest sources of inspiration.
