Phillip McConnell

Hamilton, New Jersey

Phillip McConnell is a Glitch artist with a focus on abstract, surrealist digital art. Glitch art is the aestheticization of digital or analog errors, such as artifacts and other “bugs”, by either corrupting digital code/data or by physically manipulating electronic devices. Although Glitch Art is a relatively new underground digital art form; the concept of Glitch Art has existed since 1962. While the art form is not well known by many it has existed for years.

In expressing through Glitch art, Phillip considers his method of creating art a sort of digital alchemy. To make his images he blends aspects of photography and graphic design with data bending. By bending and manipulating the raw data of a picture, he essentially corrupts the original picture creating something new and destroying what was. Creatio rationum ab interitu or creation out of destruction—in life you can either build or destroy and Phillip chooses to do both through his art.
