[Nettime-bold] GLITCH symposium & performance event


THE GLITCH SYMPOSIUM AND PERFORMANCE EVENT
11-13 January 2002
Oslo Academy of Fine Art, Norway
initiated by Motherboard / LA Org
<http://www.liveart.org>


GLITCH: [from German `glitschen' to slip, via Yiddish 'glitshen', to slide
or skid]. A surge of current or a spurious electrical signal; also, in
extended use, a sudden short-lived irregularity in behavior. The outcome of
a glitch is unknown.


WHAT IS GLITCH?
"Glitch" is a commonplace expression in computer- and networks terminology,
meaning to slip, slide, an irregularity, a malfunction or a "little
electrical error".

We have approached the theme Glitch from two main points of view:

1: Glitch as an aesthetical direction in electronic art: an aesthetic that
consciously uses and amplifies "errors" and "noise" in the realization of
an artwork.

2: Glitch as an element in the creative process, where unexpected conflicts
between hard- and software and people play an important part in generating
the work itself. Here the Glitch is a driving force in the interplay of
humans and machines, while the results fluctuate in a continuous temporal
state of change, which may be adjusted or radically altered underway.

THE GLITCH SYMPOSIUM AND PERFORMANCE EVENT
With "GLITCH" - the symposium and performance event - we wish to expose the
diversity of work created by artists working thematically and practically
within the notion of Glitch. While Glitch Music has experienced a greater
amount of exposure, other forms of Glitch Art have remained more obscure.
Some have not been conceptualized as art at all. With this Glitch event we
wish to bring together a selection of national and international artists,
academics and other Glitch practitioners for a short space of time to share
their work with the public and to create a platform for debate and
discussion between participants and public.

GLITCH therefore comprises of an intense weekend of lectures, talks and
performances with a strong emphasis on Live Art and performance that
reflects the current trend of cross-genre art practices and collaborations.
