FILM IS DEAD … And yet many camera apps still insist upon attempting simulations of that long-past era. We say NO to artificial nostalgia, pushing forward in the digital realm with different forms of creative destruction.‘ from the Decim8 App page

Is this the new Digital revolution? Is Chaos Theory finely applied to image and fashion the way to go? Can you really do all of this on your phone? Well, Yes. And it is true that in 2014 it probably makes no sense watching Couture shows ( unless you’re buying) or trying to make your crappy pics look ‘vintage’ when you can make them look ‘future’ or at least ‘vintage future’ which is still a step forward isn’t it?

And yes, Glitch Art does have a slight tinge of nostalgia as some effects might bring you back to broken VCRs and crappy video games, but it is totally digital, and it’s based on destroying image more than adding to it, plus most of it is quite random, which makes it a perfect metaphor for, well just about everything, LIFE, for example.



Glitch art is in many ways a decentralized, active movement that evades definition. I talk about glitch art in the way that I view it, not the way it should be universally defined.

→An examination of the materiality of analog and digital video

→Undermining interfaces and breaking through the computational instincts of consumer devices to liberate their latent audio and visual materiality

→Humanizing ordinarily mechanical and automated processes for aesthetic outputs

Interrupting, disrupting, and subverting the relationship of the user to consumer technological devices

DIGITAL GLITCHING (corrupting digital information)
A digital signal is a physical signal that is a representation of a sequence of discrete values (a quantified discrete-time signal), for example of an arbitrary bit stream, or of a digitized (sampled and analog-to-digital converted) analog signal.
