Glitch Art: Art inspired by computer crashes and digital errors

What happens when artists build a computer to crash? Jon Satrom and
Ben Syverson have designed an entire operating system for just such a
purpose, to make Glitch Art from a “100% problem-based operating
system”! These two Chicago based artists and programers have exhibited
their work internationally, most recently exhibited in the Funware
exhibition at MU in Eindhoven, the Netherlands. Combining humor and
criticality, Satrom and Syverson’s projects cross boundaries between
computer programming, commercial software design, Glitch Art, Noise
and New Media Art. Satrom and Syverson will present and discuss their
work at the Upgrade! Chicago, an ongoing series of New Media Art
events at The Nightingale on Tuesday March 8, 7 PM. FREE. – jonCates,
