DESCRIPTION

Dogpatch Cafe & Art Gallery, in collaboration with guest curator DC Spensley, is pleased to present “GLITCH”, a real world exhibition of limited edition archival prints of GLITCH images by 20 artists from the Glitch Artists Collective.

GLITCH is the art of damaged or corrupted digital files.

The perfection of digital files sets them apart from analog artifacts where flaws are the rule instead of the exception. There are no perfect analog artifacts, but most digital files are perfect copies of their original instantiation. Early computer graphics discovered this perfection to be a limitation, and have been attempting to incorporate deliberate imperfection as a means of becoming more authentic, more realistic. When digital files become corrupted, it is referred to as a glitch. It sometimes happens that some of these glitches have aesthetic qualities that some people consider to be art.

GLITCH Artists Collective on Facebook is a community of roughly 14,000 members that aggregates Glitch Art and hosts a thriving conversation about what GLITCH Art is and how to make it.
