mi ritrovai per una selva oscura,
ché la diritta via era smarrita.”

“Spielecke” (playground area for kids), glitch – 3rd grade, 3026x 2219px, 2013

The original picture was photographed at a shopping mall (Rathaus-Center Pankow) in Berlin. This empty playground area says it all for me: here you can store your kids whilst going shopping, the cold solitude of modern day consumerism, the emptiness of our post-modern world starts to take its toll. Soon it will fill ours heats and minds, leaving a gaping void that cannot be filled with goods any more… So let us shop while we still can.

Krecek v nocni kosili

from: “Krecek v nocni kosili, CZ 1988” (Hamster in a Nightshirt), tv-glitch – 1st grade, 2012

(found by Sulamith Sallmann)

Proposal for a terminology; hierarchy of glitch:

  • 1st grade: found glitch, no derivation, no editing
  • 2nd grade: found glitch, adapted, edited or changed
  • 3rd grade: induced glitch, no derivation, no editing
  • 4th grade: induced glitch, adapted, edited or changed
  • 5th grade (maybe over the top): 4th grade reglitched

Am I onto something or has this already been done?
