Creative in Focus - Creative Viewpoint: The Glitch Aesthetic

"In our increasingly curated world, there’s a pull toward an aesthetic that feels messy and unexpected"

Glitches are captivating. Their origin is unknown — some are spontaneous, some are planned — we don’t know. Glitches are exciting because their nature is abstract. We don’t always know exactly what we’re looking at which leaves them up for interpretation.

From our archive - 25th anniversary of the Tiananmen Square protests

25 years ago today, college students began to gather in Beijing and other Chinese cities mourning the death of ousted reformer Hu Yaobang. Hu Yaobang’s death in April trigged an unprecedented wave of pro-democracy demonstrations. The April-June 1989 movement was crushed by Chinese troops in June when army tanks rolled into Tiananmen Square on 4 June 1989.
