Glitch Art

In technology & innovatons on January 9, 2011 at 8:54 am

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 an example of which is  circuit bending.
Circuit bending is the creative short-circuiting of electronic devices such as low voltage, battery-powered guitar effects, children’s toys and small digital synthesizers to create new musical or visual instruments and sound generators.
