Marta Blicharz – ‘Designing the Corrosive Moment’ – MFA Exhibition

Marta Blicharz, the first New Media graduate student at the University of Lethbridge, will be exhibiting her MFA work on glitch aesthetics at the University’s downtown Penny Building from April 26-30. ‘Designing the Corrosive Moment’ will open on Friday, April 27th at 7pm, and will feature themes of digital disruption, collapsed photographic realities, fragmentation of postmodern psyche, apocalyptic descent into noise and designing with digital error.

The exhibition runs 1-4pm, Thursday to Monday except opening night. Please come and show your support to Marta as she nears the final chapter of her MFA program.

Marta Blicharz is a Polish-Canadian, traditionally trained visual artist, currently exploring computer graphics and photography. She employs databending and glitching to frame the subject of western consumer culture and explores the role of these methods in mainstream design. Marta is interested in how the glitch disrupts visual communication and the expected consumption of digital content by violently vandalizing the status quo of realistic representation operating in virtual space.

Marta acknowledges and thanks The University of Lethbridge, The New Media Department, Alberta Foundation for the Arts (Visual Arts and New Media Training and Career Development Individual Project Grant) in support of her MFA research.
