Glitchaus, the design house of media artist Jeff Donaldson, is leading the way in glitch wearables.
Prepared or, creatively short circuited video game systems, emulator read errors and, databent (hex edited) image manipulations are all methods Donaldson uses to create unique, one-of-a-kind knit and printed textiles.
The 16bit Edition scarf design is the result of an Atari ST read error. Scarves are machine knit at a 1:1 pixel to knot ratio, retaining the parallel between textile art and digital systems.
8bit Edition glitch designs are created with a prepared Nintendo Entertainment System. By wiring a NES to creatively short circuit, familiar video games generate program data mosaics which are then rendered as glitchy soft-wears.
Beginning in 2007 and established in 2011, Glitchaus is devoted to glitch as a new paradigm in textile, surface and, fashion design.
