MFA students at The Academy of Fine Art at KHIO have conventionally been examined in a group exhibition at the end of their studies*. This academic year, and for the first time, the final year Master students will present individual projects in different spaces at KHIO and around Oslo. These 15 newly developed projects will be diverse in form and will take place at different times during the spring semester. Some of the projects will open simultaneously so that audiences can experience up to five presentations at the same time. * The graduating students will still take part in a curated group exhibition at Kunstnernes Hus in April 2021. This exhibition, however, will no longer be their final exam.

When I walk with a camera or a scanner, I capture nature as an act of tending to the need to preserve. As I capture my surroundings and translate them to .obj, .mtl and point clouds, my recording devices remain oblivious to the wires of fungi mycel forming networks hidden underground. During autumn, winter, spring and their in-between phases, shorter and longer natural cycles are swirling simultaneously, processing and reformatting matter and information at who knows what bitrate.

“A glitch is a “surge”, “a sudden short-lived irregularity in behavior” (Oxford English Dictionary), whose aftereffects are at once shocking and effusive. The garish appearance and obstreperous sound of glitch art betokens its origination in this way: a tiny variance has triggered major damage”.
