Error Message project presents a new direction in contemporary art that still hasn’t received much critique in the studies of old and new media. Glitch art is a new occurrence that reflects the authentic beauty of digital and analogue machines.

Errors, bugs, system malfunctions are the ghosts that are so hard to explain or analyze and so often spoken of by Isaac Asimov. Artists working with software, simple or high-end analogue and digital technologies see great potential in glitches. That potential is not for art only, but a means of criticism of society with its constant strive to improvement of technology, as well as criticism of the power-wielding business machines that create new and, at times, mutually exclusive applications and harshly limit the usage of various programs and devices. By bringing aesthetics into errors, the artists prove that machines are able to express themselves, and resist the imposed strict limitations, algorithms and programs. The artists criticize the pressurized systems in technology and in society.
