Glitch Safari

Displays will glitch in our modern, urban landscape. These occurrences generally go unnoticed by society or are ignored as technological failure. Glitch Safari is a project, initiated by myself and noteNdo, that sees the magical quality in these sometimes fleeting instances and celebrates their aesthetic as machine art.

It was initiated in 2010 during GLI.TC/H: Whilst at a bar, we noticed an arcade machine was glitching.

These kind of natural glitches happen all around us every day when we least expect it, but if you’re lucky enough to have caught these glitches on camera submit it to the Glitch Safari group and help create a map of glitches!

There’s groups on Flickr and Vimeo for you to submit to. Submissions are left open, but just be sure your image is of a found glitch and, for extra points, geotag it and describe where you found it.
