Digital Aesthetics: Critical Approaches to Computational Culture
Meeting Description: 

A presentation and roundtable discussion with Dr. Carolyn Kane about her current research into glitch art and the "aesthetics of error." We will consider the beauty of datamoshing and the works of Takeshi Murata and Ryan Trecartin, while trying to place their translations of information into a deep aesthetic genealogy.
