Glitching creates opportunities to explore accidental errors and subvert the apps use, to explore place and time. Imagining the scene through the portal of a parallel universe, existing very differently from a human time-based perspective. 

Glitch Lab is a phone-based app. I discovered Lomography and the quirky story of this cheap little Russian camera’s renaissance, along with 10 rules of use, such as ‘don’t think, just shoot’ and ‘take it with you wherever you go’.

By switching between the apps I have altered images from my own work and photographs taken locally in Wardle, Rochdale, where I have recently moved to. This extracts elements that I can work with in 3d or reproduce in 2d to create a new narrative.
