Glitch, 2021

VR experience for HTC Vive and Oculus Rift

Glitch emerges at the crossroads of cyberfeminism, post-human philosophy, and Glitch Feminism (the term originally coined by Legacy Russell). The artwork utilizes a scale glitch and lack of physicality in the VR program Tilt Brush to allow the viewer to experience a new understanding of the liberation that can be found where least intended, and how we can embody post-humanism in the future to create more spaces for this creativity and potentiality. The project reconsiders ideas first examined in the scholarship of both Donna Haraway and Legacy Russell and questions how futurology, ethics, and justice intersect in the Anthropocene error. Through the audio and actions of the viewer, traditional narrative structures are countered, allowing for optimism, speculative fiction, fabulism, and hope. The work has no set duration and should be viewed at roomscale.
