Yesterday, Year of the Glitch logged it’s 16,000th follower and continues to grow. Unbelievable! For all you fans of the project, both recent and die hard, check out the Archives for hundreds more posts.

Year of the Glitch is a 366 day project by Phillip Stearns exploring various manifestations of glitches (intentional and unintentional / staged and found) produced by (digital) electronic systems.
Each day will bring a new image, video or sound file from a range of sources: prepared digital cameras, video capture devices, electronic displays, scanners, manipulated or corrupted files, skipping CDs, disrupted digital transmissions, etc.
These images are not of broken things, but the unlocking of other worlds latent in the technologies with which we surround ourselves. Part of what this project is about is approaching the familiar with fresh senses, to turn it into something that is unfamiliar.
