JUPITER 10’s Glitchy Patterns Are a Feature, Not a Bug
Founded by Bruno Basso and Christopher Brooke in 2002, wallcovering brand JUPITER 10 has never been shy about exploring the bolder spectrum of graphics for the wall. From inception, the duo set to capitalize on the technological possibilities and capabilities of digital printing to realize repeat patterns with a level of depth and perspective capable of transforming any wall into a veritable statement piece. The brand’s latest Glitch wallpaper collection mines the depths of digital artifacts, transforming visual anomalies into an invigorating expression of modern mayhem for the wall.
With 24 different designs, the Glitch collection offers a wide spectrum of corrupted digital visuals for domestic aesthetic purposes, ranging from dark and blocky, to the snow-like artifacts associated with late night analog broadcast sign-offs, to lighter expressions of the glitch art style.
Regardless of style, every JUPITER 10 Glitch wallpaper is free of glass fiber or PVC, digitally printed with environmentally-friendly inks on 100% non-toxic, eco-friendly paper from sustainably managed sources and made into 150gsm fine grade coated non-woven wallcovering.
The glitch art genre has its roots as far back as the late 1970s, but has been most recently popularized by a generation weaned upon video games, electronic music, and other digital mediums where pixelation, grain, light leaks, and color degradation are now remembered as a form of beautiful decay. Artists Nam June Paik, Dom Barra, and Rosa Menkman are all associated with the aesthetic, with online glitch art creation tools now also available to toy with.
Jupiter 10’s Glitch collection essentially transforms walls into one enormous static “screen” of pixelated and distorted digital visuals.
Samples of each Glitch design are available for £3 (about $3.75), with 20.5” x 11 yard rolls specified for 56ft² of coverage for £155 (or about $193.50 + shipping). Check out the entire JUPITER 10 Glitch collection here.
