We currently inhabit an innovative technological era which strives for small and discreet technology, a complex nano world in which very few can meddle. We carry around fragile gadgets which contain our entire life, and become debilitated when they inevitably break and can only be fixed by manufacturers or individual businesses demanding a large fee.

Glitch is an exhibition which celebrates analogue technology of the Twentieth Century, a golden era when most of us understood how things worked and could fix things ourselves. In this exhibition, artists have taught themselves the rules of how something works and then deliberately misused the technology to create artwork that is beautiful and unique.

Exhibiting and Performing Artist Adam Brown describes his work as;

“Noisy, glitchy and fun, …an art project which explores ideas of permanence, memory and technology, yelling ‘to hell with progress!’”
