Till Rückwart is a media artist and event coordinator living and working in Berlin. His work is located at the intersection of technology, humans and nature. His focus is on using artistic-creative methods to depict the influences of media and technologies that affect environments. He is particularly interested in the effects of glitches and malfunctioning software on the perception of digital spaces.

He studied for his bachelor's degree in Berlin, Lisbon and Potsdam, where he is currently also pursuing a theoretical-practical master's degree in European Media Studies.

At the Alexander von Humboldt Institute for Internet and Society, he is editor of the Digitaler Salon, a monthly format in which actors from politics, academia, industry and civil society discuss digital phenomena and relevant topics of net culture.



Salty Glitches

Till Rückwart

Salty Glitches is a counter-mapping project that uses satellite imagery to explore the relationship between technology, humans and nature as revealed by digital errors. By scanning QR codes coupled with the photographs, people can encounter the glitches on their own smartphone and become materially connected to the origin of the device’s battery.
