Glitch/Giselle is an experiment - a prototype for a new kind of project that:
• Shines a light on the future by digging into the past;
• Draws on museum objects, historic film and sound recordings, literature and archive documents as source material and uses them as raw material for open-ended creative exploration;
• Accommodates a large cast of contributors in a wide range of disciplines including: research, dance, critical writing, oral history, discussion, education work, film-making, music composition and sound engineering;
• Makes a deep impact in the real world while in production and leaves an indefinitely lasting online legacy for education, research and enjoyment.
• Responds to Mark Fisher’s ‘popular modernist' challenge i.e. to innovate cultural forms adequate to contemporary experience.
