The coup on 7 February 2012 disrupted the lives and functioning of the Maldivian people when the remnants of a 30-year dictatorship brutally re-gained control of the government. They have been systematically abusing citizen rights and terrorising the nation since.
#mvprotest is a call to be free from #mvcoup
"Although art that has 'failure' or 'imperfection' as its subject is nothing new, glitch art and its growing community could be seen as a sign of times in which protest, breakage and mis-convergence have become issues of general interest. Glitch is interesting as a 'Tipping point of failure', a malfunction that is not ignored but instead celebrated as an active space for creation."
"Technically, a glitch is best understood as an unexpected, unexplainable consequence of an interruption within one or more (digital) information-flows. "
