In yesterday’s post, we saw David Szauder’s glitch art portraits. Today, we’ll look at “Failed Memories,” more glitch art portraits, but these are photographically based and more narrative-driven.

“The basic idea is how to recode (decode) the meaning of the memory and how it can work together with my generated failure and pseudo narrativity,” Szauder explains. He takes the concept of glitch art—a style channeling the way a computer improperly reads information—and ties it to a narrative through the connection of failed memories.

His subjects are distorted by glitchy blocks scattered across their faces, so resultantly their heads, brains, and by extension, their memories. He explores visually and narratively how memories degrade and are reconstructed. “In the longterm, we start to lose parts of the details and instead of these lost fragments, we fill the gaps with our self-generated memories.”

Accompanying each image is a brief story beneath it. Please take a moment to read them, as they are necessary for full appreciation.
