Get away from the established action scripts and join the avant-
garde of the unknown. Become a nomad of noise artifacts!!
software that is used to encode and decode the information!
There are three instances when the static notion of transmitting information is
interrupted. These interruptions result in noise artifacts:
Encoding / decoding (compression), Glitch (other noise) and Feedback

Exploit compressions, feedback and glitches!
The dominant, continuing search for a noiseless channel has been,
and will always be no more than a regrettable, ill-fated dogma.!

Employ bends and breaks as a metaphor for différance. Use the
glitch as an exoskeleton for progress.!
Programmed glitch art!

Challenge the materiality (input and hard/software) and interpretation (genres, interfaces and expectations)!
Rejoice the critical trans-media aesthetics of glitch artifacts. !
* Glitches can show any medium in a critical state (ruined, unwanted, not recognized,
accidental and horrendous state); a state of hypetrophy.!
Then we see the exoskeleton of the “Vernacular of File Formats”!
* Glitches can be used to criticize the inherent politics of the medium (genre, interface
norms and expectations)!

new standards implemented by corruption.!

Glitchspeak (opposing ʻNewspeakʼ: Orwell, 1984), is not just a new form, but an
exoskeleton of progress, a new generative form.!
Just like Foucault stated that there can be no reason without madness, Gombrich wrote that order does not exist without chaos and Virilio described that there is no technological progression
without its inherent accident, I am of the opinion that ﬂow cannot be understood without interruption or functioning without glitching. This is why there is a need for glitch studies.!
Employ Glitchspeak (as opposed to Newspeak) and study what is outside !
of knowledge. Glitch theory is what you can just get away with!!
