f(Glitch) at Stony Brook, March 4-6

Please join cDACT (Consortium for Digital Arts, Culture and Technology) for an exciting dive into the world of digital error. f(Glitch)—read “the Function of Glitch”—is an interlinked series of events happening March 4-6 at Stony Brook.  There is an art exhibit at the Simons Center (running all month), a theatrical production in the Wang Chapel, a musical concert at the Staller Recital Hall, and a series of colloquia at the Humanities Institute and the Simons Center. And you won’t want to miss the reception at the Simons Center on March 5, featuring a special selection of glitch-inspired delicacies from Chef Paolo Fontana.  f(Glitch will bring together a wide range of scientists, scholars, and artists to consider the utility of noise, for scientific and humanistic research as well as for artistic production.

Glitches are a glimpse into the hidden world of technology, exposing the seams in our digital infrastructure.  Come experience with us!
