Amodern Issue 6: Reading the Illegible

Amodern Issue 6 is now available! Check out my article, “GLî†CHÉD IN †RAN$LA†ION: Rèading †ex† and Codè as a Plaÿ of $pacés“!

Here’s the abstract:

This article interrogates both visual and linguistic functions of text-based glitch art. It offers a brief history of aesthetic forms that precede text-based glitch art (art-typing and ASCII art), the coding scheme that manifests it (Unicode), and theorizes glitch art’s irruptive power as a novel language of digital design.
