Slicky-T Tries His Hand At Glitch Art

bruegI was dicking around on the interwebs yesterday when I found this pretty interesting video about Glitch Art, which up until yesterday I knew pretty much nothing about.

Turns out it’s a whole artistic movement based around a process called “databending”, which is basically the artistic misuse of digital information (props to stALLIO for that one).

Something about the philosophy of Glitch really struck a chord while I was watching the video I’ve pasted below because Glitch is basically a gigantic fuck you to the airbrushed, synthesised, photoshopped aesthetic that gets shoved down our throats every minute of every day.
