// Video Vortex 2008 // Amsterdam, Netherlands //
My main interests have always revolved around inverting the default use of new media technologies, both hardware and software-wise. During my Video Vortex VJ set, I tried to make a collage of ways through which this can be accomplished within the video medium, focusing primarily on the concept of the glitch. The English term 'glitch' means a malfunction or an error and is generally used to indicate a small defect within a technology.
Some of the glitches I will show happened accidentally, while others are triggered on purpose. For me a glitch is a form of machine poetry; a way to vocalize the internal workings of a technology.
