Abstract

The purpose of this article is to explain the concept of "accident" in visual glitch art and to examine the methodological use of accident in glitch art, in order to achieve better results in relation to glitch aesthetics. In this regard, in order to collect information, the library method was used using written sources and by referring to Latin books and articles, publications and reputable sites. Due to the fact that the subject of the research and consequently, the collected information is qualitative, therefore, a descriptive method was used to analyse the collected information. First, the aesthetics of Glitch art and the concept of accident were explained and its different layers were presented for the text of this article. Then, after evaluating the researches of Iman Moradi, Rosa Menkman and Tim Barker, the points related to the relevant reference for classifying Glitch art methods and emphasizing the concept of accident were extracted as a compass. A case study of Monkman's work entitled "The collapse of the PEL" is then studied and shows the methods used in Glitch's art to create an accident. Finally, crash strategies in Glitch art, that is, understanding the core of the genre, evaluating its goals and virtues, and identifying Glitch as an irrational empirical driving force opposed to using it as a rational tool for production.
