Literacy of the Glitch
by León De la Rosa Carrillo
Literacy of the Glitch is an Arts-Based Educational Research (ABER) project that examines the glitch and the potential it presents in terms of a learning experience related to new media and practices associated with them.
It’s build entirely out of Animated GIFs and features seven glitch portraits each touching upon different, but interrelated aspects of the glitch that can serve as vehicles to explore otherwise imperceptible qualities of the digital realm. It is hoped that these type of observations may offer new insights into the underlying nature of information and design systems that must account for the potential of error. The visitor is encouraged to investigate each portrait at length as some hyperlinks are made evident while others may not be so apparent at first sight.
