We are the glitch, we travel through the digital debris of the signature of chroma key's holy grail, musical beauty. We take a brief moment to care for the weak, a split second to mourn before we move on. We are a fading series of pixels, a distortion of the video game — a casualty, we key in imaginative space, we key out the matrix of normative structures and the virtual structures.
We play a game as posthuman as we possibly can and, simultaneously, forget that it's a game. We are the curators of the aesthetic past.
That's how I see it, anyway. We welcome you into this imaginative future, were we can glitch in the collapse of time and space into a beautiful possible future.
Welcome, phantom pixelated escapee.

“A revolution on a world scale will take a very long time. But it is also possible to recognize that it is already starting to happen. The easiest way to get our minds around it is to stop thinking about revolution as a thing — “the” revolution, the great cataclysmic break—and instead ask “what is revolutionary action?” We could then suggest: revolutionary action is any collective action which rejects, and therefore confronts, some form of power or domination and in doing so, reconstitutes social relations—even within the collectivity—in that light. Revolutionary action does not necessarily have to aim to topple governments. Attempts to create autonomous communities in the face of power (using Castoriadis’ definitionhere: ones that constitute themselves, collectively make their own rules or principles of operation, and continually reexamine them), would, for instance, be almost by definition revolutionary acts. And history shows us that the continual accumulation of such acts can change (almost) everything.” ― David Graeber, Fragments of an Anarchist Anthropology
