Glitch As Symbolic Form

Rob Myers takes us on a short historical journey of Glitch as an 
aesthetic signifier of technological presence that dates back at 
least to the 1980s. Referencing the Vaught-Kampf machine in Blade 
Runner (1982), the titular character in Max Headroom (1985). And how 
the use of Glitch as an artistic aesthetic in itself has accelerated 
with the democratisation of new technologies.
