Glitches are not glitches because they have the aesthetics of a glitch. Rosa Menkman described glitches as a “break from an expected or conventional flow of information or meaning”. Glitches are therefore not errors because they functioned in an unexpected and unintentional way, which challenges the human invented perception of normality.
The imageries that I created using data bending are not glitches because they are intentional creations. I have very limited control as I cannot predict the outcomes of their aesthetic qualities, there is a moment of mystery between saving and opening a data bended file. They were created from automatic drawings made by a robotic vacuum cleaner, the paths of the vacuum left traces that resembled maps.
