You’ve probably come across quite a lot of “pop” art which uses the notion of glitching. Glitching is a trend in visual design and digital arts that treats visuals as if there is a digital error… or a glitch. It’s not new, as I first saw it in the late 80’s with the cyberpunk movement. But it seems to have a come back today.
We are seeing this everywhere at the moment. From music videos to conceptual art and it’s even starting to creep into advertising. I like it! :)
I’ve stumbled upon a nifty little web app that allows you to upload an image file, and lets you play with some variables to produce your own glitched image! try it out here!
