2012 - The Year We “Geddan” with Glitch Art Again
The Verge’s Adi Robertson recently posted about artist Phillip Stearns’ project titled Year of the Glitch, which turns glitches, those “unwanted but sometimes beautiful” electronic mistakes, into art. He’s aiming to feature one glitch per day for an entire year.
We couldn’t help but be reminded of the good old times of the Geddan (engrish for Get Down) dance - a well-loved meme spawned by Nintendo 64’s Goldeneye 007 and a little problem called cartridge tilting. Just in time for the 2012 elections, corruption is beautiful again!
