From fans’ comments on Facebook
There’s a new rising star online
Fans go mad about him, Facebook hounds respect him, even the developer of the Like Button likes him. He’s on Mashable and in art reviews.
And all he did, and does, is glitching. Glitch after glitch, since June 2011, have converged into one big Glitchr: a project by Laimonas Zakas, Lithuanian artist? hacker? both? who experiments with digital bugs on the online platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, Google, to create his paintings or, as art critics put it,
abstract graphic character textures.
Here for you some of Zakas’ works. Or you can enjoy them in an exhibition-like format, from August 8 to September 9, at Jonas Mekas Visual Arts Center in Vilnius.
Often, his bugs get soon fixed by Facebook guardians and disappear, so Zakas suggests his fans to always make a screenshot and post it on the wall.
It somehow reminded me that quote by Banksy: “It’s a very frustrated feeling you get when the only people with good photos of you work are the police department”.
Whereas this is my favourite one. Seems a piece of the Concrete Poetry. Looks almost Apollinaire.official Facebook page.
