[ISEA2016] Paper: Griffin Byron – Semiotics of Glitch Artistic Practice

Abstract (short paper)

Glitch art is typically described as a kind, or style, of production error: “accidental” (caused or found) mistakes in the production or translation of a digital work. However, much of glitch is created using intended errors, or even simulations of error, created via reproducible means. The latter defines glitch aesthetics, as distinct from glitch production. This paper explores the semiotics of various types of glitch in the context of a fluctuating artistic practice.
