f(Glitch), or The Function of Glitch, is an interlinked series of events that includes an ongoing art exhibit now through March 29 at the Simons Center, a theatrical production in the Charles B. Wang Center, a musical concert at Staller Center Recital Hall and a series of colloquia at the Humanities Institute and the Simons Center. The event brings together a wide range of scientists, scholars and artists to consider the utility of noise and error, for scientific and humanistic research as well as for artistic production.
This is the fourth in a series of large-scale events produced by the Consortium for Digital Arts, Culture and Technology (cDACT). Previous events considered sound, space and data — each a central concept for digital culture — with a broad range of participants from the arts and sciences.
Please visit the website for more information, including the complete schedule for the three-day event.
