A rare black and white glitch/collage

How I make glitch art

  1. Take a picture, or several.
  2. Run it through a series of “glitch” apps, photo manipulation apps and the occasional twitter bot. These are on my phone, it’s not even a great phone.
  3. Choose the good first process information.
  4. Layer up, collage, throw together. Reapply stage 2 if you like.
  5. Repeat until something aesthetically interesting turns up
