Khadija Aziz is a Toronto-based digital textile artist and educator. She is currently an undergraduate student at OCAD University and works at the Textile Museum of Canada in the Education department. She makes glitch art by transforming original images through a back-and-forth relationship between the hand and digital ways of distortion. Through this process-based practice, she creates unexpected surface outcomes by playing with chance. Her quest is to further investigate glitch art and the digital aesthetic, and then translate her glitch art on to textiles. Glitch art is usually seen with the barrier of screens; she invites people to experience glitch art in an intimate way.
As a process-based artist, Aziz's work explores the hybridization of traditional mediums and digital technologies through intuitive experimentation of the interrelationships between a variety of mediums, surfaces, and technological approaches. This type of intentional play is important to her because the process dictates the outcome, while she as the artist determine the guidelines. She considers traditional techniques of textile art in defining her own methodology of digital design, which includes the manipulation of textile art before and after digital printing.
