The Glitching installation was shown at the ACM Creativity & Cognition Conference, in Glasgow, June 2015, as part of the Art Exhibition, within the very lovely gymnasium space of Glasgow College’s, Charles Oakley Building. Glitching was shown alongside a great programme of artworks including fellow Circle members Lauren Hayes, and Dave Murray-Rust and Rocio von Jungenfeld.

Venue: Edinburgh College of Art
Date: 28th Aug 2013
Show times: 12noon and 2pm
Running time: 100mins
The glitch is the defect or malfunction; when technology misbehaves. Distinct from noise, which corrupts information, the glitch affects the decisions our technologies increasingly make for us, amplifying the outcome. This one-off event, encompassing promenade performance, an intelligent search engine, technological demonstration, dance performance and manipulated light installation, explores how interactive media art projects can offer insights into the affects and effects of the glitch.
Participating artists: Richard Ashrowan; Simon Biggs/Sue Hawksley/Garth Paine; Beverley Hood; Rocio Von Jungenfeld; Hadi Mehpouya/ Robert Powell.
On Tuesday 11th December, I’ll be presenting glitching as part of the Abrupt Encounter project, which is a new live arts programme in Central Scotland, developed with by a collective of creatively engaged participants with learning difficulties. I’ll be making a public presentation about glitching at 10.30am in the Changing Room Gallery, Stirling, followed by an afternoon workshop with the Abrupt Encounter participants.
“An Abrupt Encounter will be a collaboratively devised moment, presentation or performance, temporal in nature and exploring the relationship of the company/s to public spaces and environments, whether it is to the rich halls of Stirling Castle, the minimalist contemporary corridors of Forth Valley Royal Hospital, or even responding to the movement of people through a train station.”

glitching is a digital dance performance led by artist Beverley Hood, performed by Tony Mills, Hannah Seignior and Felicity Beveridge, with a soundtrack composed by Martin Parker. The performance is inspired by the glitches and malfunctions of characters in sports and action computer games. After the performance the audience will be invited to step into the digital shoes of the dancers and follow the movements of the on-screen dance troupe.
The project is funded by an Artist Commission from the Scotland and Medicine Partnership for the Human Race exhibition. Additional funding has been provided by Creative Scotland and Edinburgh College of Art.
It’s been a busy few weeks for the glitching project. I was a speaker at the 2nd International Conference Transdisciplinary Imaging at the Intersection between Art, Science and Culture, at the Victoria College of the Arts, Melbourne in June. You can find a streaming video of my presentation here. It included keynotes speakers Oliver Grau and Anna Munster, who both gave fascinating presentations.
The “Human Race: inside the science of sports medicine” exhibition, which features (and commissioned) the glitching installation has just opened at the City Art Centre, Edinburgh. It’ll be there until Sept 9th 2012 and the next glitching performance is at Inspace, 1 Crichton Street, University of Edinburgh on Sept 7th, 7.30 for an 8.00pm start. Hope to see you there!
