⁄ ’fu:bar ⁄ is an annual festival focused on electronic error-themed reinterpretative multimedia art. The week long festival starts on the first Saturday of October and hosts an artist residency program, showcases diverse talks, workshops, performances, and an inclusive group exhibition. ⁄ ’fu:bar ⁄ is an open and free glitch art event, aimed at local communities in a physical space, and accessible to transnational communities in networked space, while including diverse local, regional and international authors and their collaborations.
Three works were presented in the exhibition.
The video Park St was initially realised as part of the project you are here during a residency at Islington Mill in Salford, England. It is a reflection on disjunction between time and place, by way of a glitch in Google Street View.
Dispersione di Paura and Sparo on the other hand are derived from recordings of live webcam footage (as part of Fear the party)and examine the effects of codecs and video compression techniques. They begin with a still frames from a webcam video and advance through a sequence of frames. The sequence begins with a nearly clear picture. The subsequent ones are broken up into pixelated images, glitches, with different arrangements of colours.
