These portraits altered by Glitch Art techniques demonstrate the fragility of the subject's identity when facing the pressures of a super-productive society. Individuals in today's society aim at attaining perfection in every aspect of their lives  where imperfection has no place. The longing  for perfection affects us negatively either psychologically  and emotionally. These works aims to emphasize a relation between the Glitch phenomenon - which is a technical failure whether it happens in a digital or in a analog domain - with the dysfunction of our emotional states. By using Glitch Art techniques, this work isolate the subject  from the environment, capturing the moment  of raw emotion and tension within indivdual's subjectivity. Then, the imperfection becomes an  aesthetic representation of our emotional failures and it startlingly creates an atmosphere of ''strangeness.''
