AN INTERNATIONAL NOISE && [DIRTY] NEW-MEDIA
Now in its second year, GLI.TC/H gathers a variety of participants + works + ideas from within glitch/dirty/experimental-new-media art communities into a multi-day & multi-format happening consisting of video screenings, real-time performances, workshops, lectures, panels, a gallery exhibition and on-going online components.
Thinkers and artists; Makers and breakers converge to celebrate technological catastrophe. A glitch is a moment known to everyone but enjoyed by few. GLI.TC/H brings together those inspired/curious/provoked by glitches and provides a platform to break things, share thoughts, and develop ideas.
GLI.TC/H will include works from over 100 participants from more than a dozen countries and will be taking place in virtual-space at http://gli.tc/h and in real-space from Nov 3 – 6 in Chicago, US; Nov 11 – 13 in Amsterdam, NL; Nov 19 in Birmingham, UK.
Recent writings, works, and experiments in glitch art exemplify the potential of new-media-art to expose critical links within our (increasingly mediated) digital-culture. Last year’s conference brought a diverse and geographically scattered community together to discuss and share their works and ideas in real-time and real-space. The conversations had and connections made at GLI.TC/H 2010 have continued to develop virtually over the past year. GLI.TC/H 20111 will collate and celebrate these glitchy developments in an unstoppable multi-city event fueled by these chaotic communities and vibrant participants old and new.

Evan Meaney [http://www.evanmeaney.com/] is an american-born scientist who teaches time-based media design at the University of Tennessee. His research, curation and artistic practices delve into liminalities and glitches of all sorts, equating failing data to ghosts, seances and archival hauntology.
Rosa Menkman [http://rosa-menkman.blogspot.com/] is a Dutch visualist who focuses on visual artifacts created by accidents in digital media. The visuals she makes are the result of glitches, compressions, feedback and other forms of noise. By combining both her practical as well as an academic background, she merges her abstract pieces within a grand theory artifacts (a glitch studies), in which she strives for new forms of conceptual synthesis (synesthesia) of the two.
Jon Satrom [http://jonsatrom.com] spends his days fixing things and making things work. He spends his evenings breaking things and searching for unique blips inherent to the systems he explores and exploits. Satrom teaches a course on Glitch Art at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, runs a creative web and video studio called Studio Thread, performs real-time audio/video, creates colorful glitch-ware, and is involved in various collective online and offline new-media efforts.
