In, “What is Post-Digital?” Cramer brings up the ideal of digital being a lower quality medium. Cramer references vinyl as a better sound than CDs & MP3s and film as a more beautiful visual than digital recording … allegedly. The explanation of this, however, is not considered extensively, and the debate of what is the objectively better medium is not resolved. Instead, “glitch aesthetics” are┬ácalled out as an answer. I would like to discuss this debate, and what causes it. I would also like to know what glitch aesthetics are, and if they exist in strictly digital and post-digital technologies.
