GLITCH – A POINT OF VIEW
Glitches are everywhere, in every software or hardware that we use. They pop up from time to time but they are all unintended, being only involuntary malfunctions of the software code being run. What are we going to talk about in this essay is intentional glitches, software that generate glitches and artists using machine errors to display their work aesthetically.

Re-framing a space into multiple screens Superliquidato (SPRLQDT) – a hazy story
SPRLQDT presented itself as a capsule space, a backdrop where ideas and practices merging from digital art or derived from it, whether experiments and ‘orthodox’ media, could find a temporary place. For you see, the digital art scene was and still is to coagulate, but back in 2014, finding a platform for it was a constant struggle. Yet, between the hive-mind of the Internet and ideas unfolding in everyday conversations, rummaging through ways of visibility and exasperation, spaces can emerge; like this one, in a dome-like structure, 12 m², an oddity among the artists’ studios and galleries of The Paintbrush Factory in Cluj-Napoca.
