In "strategies for displaying unknown variables" Alan Page invites us to navigate decontextualized visual disturbances. Using variations of the screen, they implore us to engage with the unrecognizable, challenge us with various barriers to seeing, and beckon us to explore in a playground of digital glow, broken files, & machine learning.

Alan Page (a.k.a. [sic][redacted] ) is a Portland-based glitch and new media artist. Through mixed physical media, intentional software misuse, and --more-than-occasionally-- chance, they create decontextualized visual disturbances that aim to exploit the spine itching discomfort that comes from unexpected results. Influenced by (and a lover of) the old, broken, probably ruined, and can’t-be-bothered-to-fix, Page creates layered, sometimes dissonant media that are simultaneously pure experimentations and an odd cipher to visually narrate their process of digesting their surroundings.
Alan Page (a.k.a. [sic][redacted]) (b.1987) is a new media artist who focuses primarily on glitch art as a means to interpret the physical and verbal ambiguity in everyday communication--objects and places included. Born in Washington and raised in Arizona and Georgia, they received a B.A. in visual communication from Savannah College of Art and Design in 2009. They are currently based in Portland, Oregon and have most recently exhibited in the 2018 /‘fu:bar/ Glitch Art Festival in Zagreb, Croatia.
