Rosa Menkman


There’s a dash of bizarreness in any old glitch, but the glitch art found in the interactive digital art project Xilitla is dizzying, clashing, the stuff of nightmares you can’t wake up from. A work of protracting triangles, haunting mannequin faces, and zigzag patterns, Xilitla was created in game engine Unity by glitch practitioner Rosa Menkman, who a few years ago authored Glitch Moment/um, a book which covers the increasing popularization of the glitch aesthetic in digital art.
