Iman Moradi: Glitch Aesthetics. Thesis, School of Design Technology, Department of Architecture, The University of Huddersfield, January 27th 2004.



In music classification, the Glitch has been elevated to the prestigious status of having its own genre. However, there have been very few discussions on the practice of creating or capturing visual manifestations of Glitches in today’’s highly signal perfect media and pixel perfect computer interfaces. This seems paradoxical in relation to earlier trends of discussing qualities of media and is testament to the fact that we are becoming more silent as technology finds its own voice.

The underlying theme in this study, was to find out what it is that drives visual glitch artists in their desire to create glitches and to seek an answer to the question, can the glitch be an effective medium in the ‘‘pantheon of artforms?’’1 - ““While Glitch Music has experienced a greater amount of exposure, other forms of Glitch Art have remained more obscure. Some have not been conceptualised as art at all”” (Motherboard, 2002). This dissertation aims to address this void and its surrounding issues.
