    Chapter from the book: Kane, C. 2019. High-Tech Trash: Glitch, Noise, and Aesthetic Failure.


    Chapter 4 analyzes the photographic glitches leveraged in the work of German artist Thomas Ruff. Ruff’s Internet appropriations offer a rich point for discussing digital signal processing and the deliberate introduction of noise into otherwise clear channels of communication.
