A concept that refers to the social and cultural spaces that exist outside of the traditional binary of public and private spaces, often associated with hybrid and multicultural environments. It combines the 'real' (physical) and 'imagined' (mental or perceived) spaces to create a unique space for understanding and interpreting the complexities of the lived experience. The term is often associated with the work of Edward Soja and highlights the interplay between social, historical, and spatial dynamics.

In the context of art, a "glitch" refers to an unexpected or unintentional error in a digital or electronic system that creates a visually interesting or aesthetically unique result. Glitch art embraces these imperfections, often using them deliberately to create an innovative and unconventional visual experience that challenges traditional notions of perfection and order in digital media. This art form can include distortions, pixelations, or corrupted data that give rise to new, often unexpected visual expressions.
Artificial Intelligence (AI), in the context of art, refers to the use of computer algorithms and machine learning to create or contribute to artistic works. AI can analyze vast amounts of data and learn from existing art styles to generate new pieces, assist artists in the creative process, or even collaborate in interactive art installations. AI-generated art often explores the intersection of technology and creativity, challenging traditional boundaries and definitions of art and artist.
