Sometimes when things go wrong they go very, very right. All of us encounter endless visual effects of data corruption in software, lens based photography, games, automated systems and phones. The Error: File Not Found Glitch Art show runs with the idea that although glitches are understood to be errors, Glitch photography is a new medium and an aesthetic approach that challenges the way we perceive visual information and the notion of creation through destruction.

This group show features the work of Vancouver glitch artist, Dizz McGruber, as well as other international artists, all who are responsible for the glitch art showing up in music videos, film trailers, logos, music, textiles, drawing and paintings around the world. Check out art that has been created through non-native image processing, generative or general glitch processes and challenges the notion that this type of work is created through a simple destructive process.

Work includes hard-copied objects, videos, net art and installations. Each artist will provide information about the processes that they have used and show how erratic digital faults and interruptions are formed into a wave of creative interpretations and fine art.

Hear from 100 Braid St resident glitch artist Dizz McGruber and two of the international artists participating in the show about what it is like to belong to an international peer group of artists and options for getting connected to this world. Each artist will speak about how they were introduced and came to be involved with this form of art, the individual processes that each of them uses, and the opportunities and doors that have opened for them to create a living from their work.
