glitch art In a technical sense a #glitch is the #unexpected result of a #malfunction. It was first recorded in English in 1962 during the American space program by John Glenn when describing problems they were having, Glenn explained, "Literally, a glitch is a spike or change in voltage in an electrical current." Early examples of glitches used in media art include Digital TV Dinner (1979) created by Raul Zaritsky, Jamie Fenton, and Dick Ainsworth by manipulating the Bally's video game console and recording the results on videotape. Glitch is used to describe these kinds of bugs as they occur in software, #videogames,#images#videos#audio, and other forms of data. The term glitch came to be associated with music in the mid 90s to describe a genre of#experimental/noise/electronica (see glitch music). Shortly after, as VJs and other visual artist began to embrace the glitch as an aesthetic of the digital age, glitch art came to refer to a whole assembly of visual arts

The Slender Man (also known as Slender Man or Slenderman) is a fictional character that originated as an Internet meme created by #SomethingAwful forums user Victor Surge in 2009. It is depicted as resembling a thin, unnaturally tall man with a blank and usually featureless face, and wearing a black suit. The Slender Man is described as very tall and thin with unnaturally long arms, which it can extend to intimidate or capture prey. It has a white, featureless head and appears to be wearing a dark suit. The Slender Man is associated with the forest and has the ability to teleport The Slender Man is commonly said to stalk, abduct, or traumatize people, particularly children. The Slender Man is not tied to any particular story, but appears in many disparate works of fiction, mostly composed online. The Slender Man was created in a contest launched on the Something Awful forums on June 8, 2009, with the goal of editing photographs to contain supernatural entities. On June 10, a forum poster with the user name "Victor Surge" contributed two black and white images of groups of children, to which he added a tall, thin spectral figure wearing a black suit  Previous entries had consisted solely of photographs; however, Surge supplemented his submission with snatches of text, supposedly from witnesses, describing the abductions of the groups of children, and giving the character the name, "The Slender Man": The Slender Man soon went viral, spawning numerous works of fanart, cosplay and online fiction known as "creepypasta": scary stories told in short snatches of easily copyable text that spread from site to site.

Shaded relief, or hill-shading, simulates the cast shadow thrown upon a raised relief map, or more abstractly upon the planetary surface represented. The shadows normally follow the English convention of top-left lighting in which the light source is placed near the upper-left corner of the map. If the map is oriented with north at the top, the result is that the light appears to come from the north-west. Many people have pointed out that this is unrealistic for maps of the northern hemisphere, because the sun does not shine from that direction, and they have proposed using southern lighting. However, the normal convention is followed to avoid multistable perception illusions (i.e. crater/hill confusion)
