crumbarf (Safari)

crumbarf (Safari) 1.1a is a screensaver for Mac OSX that chews and spews chunks of your browsing history! It mangles the cookie crumbs you leave behind after your digital excursions. By hunting down and hastily chewing up Safari’s image caches and barfing them into video RAM, crumbarf is constantly d/evolving as a cracked-media-mirror reflecting and refracting the host computer’s habits, preferences, and dreams.
crumbarf or crumbafThe crumbarf (Safari) 1.1a screensaver was created for Super Modern Art Museum (SPAMM) 2013 curated by LaTurbo Avedon and Systaime. Safari

After installing crumbarf, you can take it for a ride by opening your System Preferences and clicking on Desktop & Screensaver. You can change the speed of the barf in Screen Saver Options. It did weird stuff on my computer and kept crashing while I was making it. You shouldn’t really be able to do this… If you find that it is causing trouble, simply delete it. I’ll probably be updating bits and pieces here and there…

Genealogy is the study of lines of descent and origin; the development of families and the tracing of their lineages and history. (glitch) Art however, does not exist as a linear history or as some kind of glitch continuum. Following Foucault, the aim of a genealogy here is not to analyse a subjects history from a singular perspective or to try to form a narrative where one event impacts on the next, but to recognise the complexities and processes of its many affiliated histories.

(glitch) Art does not follow this traditional forking family tree-form. Rather there are many, parallel, interconnected non-linear, fragmented and overlapping histories which impact each other in many directions. This (glitch) genealogy does not focus on Glitch Art from as singular viewpoint, nor does it attempt to give some all encompassing overview. The exhibition instead focuses on the different threads that interconnect generations of the different communities of visual (glitch) artists and their working methods, conceptual themes and problematics.

(glitch) Genealogies fragments Glitch history into multiple (historical) categories, such as ‘NES-Aesthetics’, ‘GUI Politics’, ‘literacy’, ‘Authorship’ and ‘3D glitch Reality’.

In discussing the issue of Glitch genealogies our aim is not to create a historical review or (re)create a ‘total’ archive or inclusive overview, we look at these genealogies with the aim of understanding Glitch Art in the present.

Curated by Kim Asendorf, Daniel Franke, John McKiernan and Rosa Menkman

In conversation with John McKiernan, I said:

“I agree that hystory is not as simple as a linear timeline. Time is a crutch; Time is a control mechanism. We’re all fishing in the same cosmic stream… I’m super happy to be involved in this hyperthreading and crossing of lines…”

IBNIZ by viznut

IBNIZ is a virtual machine designed for extremely compact low-level audiovisual programs. The leading design goal is usefulness as a platform for demoscene productions, glitch art and similar projects. Mainsteam software engineering aspects are considered totally irrelevant.

IBNIZ stands for Ideally Bare Numeric Impression giZmo. The name also refers to Gottfried Leibniz, the 17th-century polymath who, among all, invented binary arithmetic, built the first four-operation calculating machine, and believed that the world was designed with the principle that a minimal set of rules should yield a maximal diversity.

GLI.TC/H awarded Propeller Grant

Join GLI.TC/H at the Propeller Fund 2012 Awards Ceremony!

Friday, November 9, 7­–8:30pm
Mana Contemporary Chicago, 2233 South Throop Street, Chicago, IL 60608

Please join Propeller at a ceremony honoring the 15 winners of the 2012 Propeller Fund awards, which serve to promote informal and self-organized creative activity in the Chicago area. Come celebrate the grant recipients and the community with food, drink, and music (DJ: Chances Dances). The awards ceremony is presented in conjunction with the MDW Fair.

Propeller Fund is excited to announce the 2012 awardees: America/n ($2000), AREA Chicago Issue #13: Home and Housing ($6000), Art Patch Project ($2000), CAKE ($6000), The Chicago Television Project ($2000), Comfort Station ($2000), A Day Without Public Art in Pilsen ($2000), Extinct Entities ($2000), The Franklin ($2000), GLI.TC/H ($6000), Microbroadcasting Chicago’s Art History ($2000), Prison-Neighborhood Arts Project ($6000), Rooting: Regional Networks, Global Concerns ($2000), Splitbeam ($6000), Toward a Union of Public Artists: SHoP Fellowship ($2000)


Propeller Fund recognizes that small, self-organized operations constitute a large catalyst for the creative activity and vitality of the Chicago visual art world. These projects are responsible for much of the complexity and richness in the art community.

From artist organized events, informal roundtables and workshops, collectively organized exhibition spaces, and publishing endeavors, a large number of the activities that actively sustain Chicago’s artists are informal, anti-institutional, or inconsistent in public presentation. These three attributes simultaneously fuel projects and disqualify them from traditional funding sources.

This informal and self-organized creative activity is abundant in Chicago.

Propeller Fund is conceptualized to stimulate its further growth; to encourage more varied models; to spread the activities into more diverse areas; to promote the public’s interaction with, and public recognition of such activities; and to spark ambitions beyond current formats.
