The ambiguity formed in the Glitch language pursues two functions and an independent nature; On one hand, it gives the pixel as the smallest component of the digital image, an independent identity and a separate aesthetic expression, on the other hand, it allows the audience to take an active role in the aesthetic perception by illustrating in the distorted and damaged images.
Pixel aesthetic in glitch art is a discourse that moves from the whole to parts and subsequently from parts to the whole, creating a cycle that makes us look at pixels as independent and aesthetic elements. Therefore, glitch artists apart from the typical public opinions about noise, redefining the pixel language and its aesthetics in our minds by creating works to introduce the true value and nature of pixels. The structural contradictions and apparent similarities between pixel and visual languages have led the glitch artists to use all the available features and strategies of the visual language in their works that aligns with the practical logic and structure of technology revolution.
