In a technical sense, a glitch is a small problem or fault that prevents something from being successful or working as well as it should.
Yes, it is indeed an error, and the glitch art consists in exploiting that error and using it for aesthetic purposes.
Artists embracing this big movement use both digital and analog systems to modify files and produce visual inconsistencies. To get to the point in which the outputs are beautifully rough some of the works are created using real physical changes to the hardware, others are made by directly altering digital files to produce visual errors. We have to mention that glitch art is that wide and spread it also comprehends video distortions (datamosh) as well as sound effects.
But since we love graphic design and still pictures, we decided today to put together for you a bunch of broken and corrupted images, everything “wrong” we could find online.
