glitch night

Some time ago, Performative fail was part of a Glitch video night Organized by Nick Briz at the UCF Cinematheque (April 21th 2009). As I am still curating collections of different artifact videos, I like these kinds of 'personal favorites' lists (so I share them with here!):

Especially for this night, Evan Meany wrote a little piece to introduce glitch art which can be found here

"Glitching represents an attempt to understand the liminality between translation and interpretation though methodical alteration and systematic intervention of digital files."


Another Glitch night that took place (in 2008) was curated by Jon Satrom and called
"Glitch: Creative Problem Creating"

Often considered to be a problem, errors, glitches, and accidents are nonetheless a part of the art-marking process. Curated by new media artist and SAIC faculty member Jon Satrom, this program gathers films, videos, hacked TV broadcasts, interactive work, and modified video games that revel in failure, rejoice in errors, and celebrate the happy accident. Works showed on this night included:

SUICIDE SOLUTION (Brody Condon, 2004)
(Siebren Versteeg (2000)
486 SHORT VIDEOS (LoVid, 2008)

Evan Meaney's "to hold a future body..." -- amazing work, beautiful essay/process notes. Thank you very much for this reference.

I've been working a bit in a similar direction, but not very satisfied yet with the manifestation of the ideas. I'd appreciate any feedback: http://tr.im/tgfe
