f(Glitch), or The Function of Glitch, is an interlinked series of events that includes an art exhibit at the Simons Center, a theatrical production in the Wang Chapel, a musical concert at the Staller Recital Hall and a series of colloquia at the Humanities Institute and the Simons Center. It will bring together a wide range of scientists, scholars, and artists to consider the utility of noise, for scientific and humanistic research as well as for artistic production. This is the fourth in a series of large-scale events produced by cDACT (Consortium for Digital Arts, Culture and Technology). Previous events considered sound, space, and data—each a central concept for digital culture—with a broad range of participants from the arts and sciences. We now turn to another crucial topic: error and noise.
f(Glitch) Festival at Stony Brook University continues through March 29.
