Competition Time – Glitch art

Congratulations to last week’s winner of our #lowlightphotography photo competition, Liza Cauldwell (@lizacauldwell)! Thank you to everybody who has taken the time to send in their entries.

This week we’re delving into digital with our new theme, glitch art - taking inspiration from Many Voices, One Nation artist Huw Alden Davies, whose project ‘Xennial: Dreaming in Colour’ explores the concept of a microgeneration, ‘xennials’, bridging the gap between two eras described as x gens and millennials, whilst broadening the perspective of Welsh culture through photography and lens-based media.

If you’re new to glitch art, we’ve put together some useful information and tools to help you create your own below.
