This is a past event.


When: Sept. 29-Oct. 3 2010
Described by its organizers as an “international gathering of noise and new media practitioners,” GLI.TC/H runs Wed 9/29 through Sun 10/3. Wednesday’s event was a gallery opening at Roxaboxen Exhibitions (2130 W. 21st) featuring work by Melissa Barron, Karl Klomp, Daniel Temkin, and others. Tonight at 6 PM Dutch artist Rosa Menkman, who works with visual artifacts created by digital glitches (what she calls “the primal data-screams of the machine”), presents a program of videos and performs live at the Gene Siskel Film Center (164 N. State) as part of the School of the Art Institute’s Conversations at the Edge series. Fri 10/1 at 4 PM, in conjunction with the SAIC’s biweekly film series Eye & Ear Clinic, Flaxman Theater (112 S. Michigan) hosts a streamed performance from Cheap Machines, a program of “micro-screenings,” and a panel discussion moderated by Evan Meaney. Later that night Transistor (5045 N. Clark) will screen a program of short films at 8 PM, and Aaron Zarzutski, Morgan Higby Flowers, and others will perform. Sat 10/2 the Nightingale Theater (1084 N. Milwaukee) hosts a series of hacking workshops from 11 AM till 5:30 PM, followed by a “databending pizza party,” another program of shorts, and performances from James Connolly & Eric Pellegrino, Arcanebolt, Jeraman, and Andrew Bucksbarg, among others. Saturday wraps up with a “Glitchy Disco” dance party at Club Foot (1854 W. Augusta) from 10 PM till 2 AM. GLI.TC/H closes Sun 10/3 at Flaxman Theater with a series of talks and lectures from 11 AM-2 PM, among them artist Notendo talking about transforming a Nintendo into an “audio/visual synthesizer and digital collage/pattern generator.”
