Glitch Art Aesthetic
Glitch art is characterized by images that have been spliced, offset, de-interlaced, xeroxed, pixelated, or any number of filtered effects that makes the image look, for lack of a better word, glitched.
What is Glitch Art?
Glitch art is a continuous transaction between human and machine. You give the machine an image. It gives you back an altered image. You push, it pulls, you give, it takes. It’s an ongoing negotiation. The machine gives back infinite altered versions of that image. The beauty is in the curation of these iterations. The machine can glitch infinitely. It is up to the artist to choose the one that is compelling. Read more

I feel like I’ve been working on this for a long time and it’s still not done. The hair bothers me. But I love the expression. I was having the kids pose for their passport photos and we were trying to stick with the tips from the US passport photo wesite: “Subject is directly facing camera with a neutral expression; eyes are clearly visible. Neutral expression is preferred.” The kids were having a hard time keeping a straight face but for Peter it seemed to come naturally.
I like that it kind of captures an essence of Peter. In the future I’d like to work on abstracting it a little more (in some ways it looks too photographic). The challenge for me is to see how much I can abstract it while still retaining the essence of the original subject.
