A “glitch” is, by definition, an error. The definition of the word is a sudden, usually temporary malfunction or fault in equipment. “Creation By Destruction” as Clif Pottberg, administrator of the Glitch Artists Collective Facebook group, says when presenting his work. So basically glitch art is happening when something goes wrong. It’s an imperfection, and the result is often strangely beautiful.

Glitch art is a global movement against magazines using too much Photoshop to correct the imperfections of the models, “beautiful” people always looking at us in the advertising world. It is a new movement that is celebrating imperfections, or shall we say, creating imperfection and spreading it.
