Apparenty glitches are the new stitches, because artist Phillip Stearns made this series of Glitch Textiles from images he took with a broken digital camera, and they look totally amazing.

These blankets are layered with irony: a digital photographic image, made with an intentionally broken (rewired) camera, is mechanically woven or knit into a photoblanket, an object commonly advertised as a kitsch memento. In this project, a keepsake for cherishing one’s memories now becomes a platform for fashioning corrupted memory, the cold logic of digital systems into soft, warm blankets.
