Glitch art is what happens when technology rebels. Neither humans nor computers are perfect, and when an error creeps into the system, the results are both frightening and inspiring. New York-based artist Phillip David Stearns has turned digital glitches into visual feasts. By converting between file formats and running data through his own custom filters, Stearns turns images into pixelated explosions that he then weaves into blankets and rugs, turning the digital into physical.
