A glitch-based approach that embraces bugs within unstable systems is at the mercy of the platform or system being leveraged. A perpetually beta world has proven fruitful for the glitch artist. However, lurking around every software update, patch and/or OS release are “fixes” and “improvements”, rendering glitch techniques and tools “broken”. There is a constant tango between the commercial promise of perfection and the artists who choose to celebrate the loose ends, corporate kludges and software glitches. Satrom’s work spans over a decade of new media upgrades, honoring obsolete exploits, developing new implementations while leveraging ever-present technological failures.
