[ geneology of glitch affect ]

Glitch Timond, 2014.11 irregular archival prints mounted on foamboard. Inspired by A Lexicon of Glitch ‘Affect,’ my collection of noise tropes from popular culture.

The collage shows a collection of glitch clichés collected from popular culture. These former disturbances have gained meaning beyond their technological value; the effects have became signifiers, pointing to the presence of for instance hackers, ghosts, A.I., 'reality' and lofi or retro 'emotional' technologies.

I chose to frame the cliches in non-square, non-quadrilateral windows, in different x/y/z spaces to signal our blindness to ‘other possibilities’ then the ones usually offered via our standard resolutions.
