A three dimensional array of arbitrary characters that is transformed and projected out into three dimensional space, before being rotated into various clusters, constellations, and spiral galaxies. Initially the product of a coding error, as part of a non-creative project, but the results were visually interesting enough to explore and compile. A minor testament to the fundamental role played by chance and error in the production of digital artefacts, and its value for digital creativity more broadly, outside the deliberate production of ‘glitch aesthetics’.
