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 Persian and 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. Glitch's aesthetic art and the concept of accident were first explained, and its various layers were presented for the text of this article.

Finally, accident stimulation strategies in Glitch art, which means understanding the core of the genre, evaluating its goals and virtues, and identifying Glitch as an irrational experimental driving force and opposed to using it as a logical tool for production.
