Abstract
This thesis presents glitch serendipity as a formalized approach to artistic practice. The study focuses on the concepts of glitch, remix, and serendipity, employing interdisciplinary methods and principles such as disjunctive strategies, explorability, and ambiguity. Glitch serendipity offers researchers flexible methods for open exploration, leading to unexpected encounters and generating research prospects. This approach enhances our understanding of phenomena in an interdisciplinary manner, facilitating a breadth of experiences and expressions. Through explorative methods, remixing of digital materials, and leveraging open-source tools, novel ways of experiencing and interacting with media are attained. The portfolio reflects on projects across media, including still imagery, gaming, video art, and live coding to create a spectrum of glitch expression, highlighting the unique insights and possibilities they offer. The formalized approach outlined in this thesis pushes the limits of digital structures, encourages experimentation with conceptual juxtapositions, and embraces ambiguity, resulting in serendipitous insights and discoveries that open new avenues for artistic expression and challenge normative perceptions of functionality and beauty.
