In this project I’m trying to develop a theoretical frame for disability in the digital realm. I propose the glitch – a spurious technical rupture – as a vital crip moment. That is, if we take the web to be more of a living organism than is usually allowed, we might think about glitches as generative and radical the way we conceptualize disability as an unruly and powerful check on normative logics and eugenic fantasies. I do a brief intellectual lineage in this project, tracing a unified systems-thinking frame around both glitches and disability through the twentieth century, a paradigmatic moment of which might be the research and tragic castration of computer science forebear Alan Turing. I read a glitch art practice known as “datamoshing” as a contemporary example of the digital vitality I’m trying to find. And I end with a notion of “crip mediation” that embraces a wider weave of forces in digital disability to imagine ways for disabled subjects to reclaim the media systems that have codified oppressive medical knowledges.
