As a compendium to this research, she published the Glitch Moment/um (inc, 2011), a little book on the exploitation and popularization of glitch artifacts. Menkman developed and highlighted the politics of resolution setting further in a second book titled Beyond Resolution (i.R.D., 2020). In 2019 Menkman won the Collide, Arts at CERN Barcelona award, which inspired her recent researchinto im/possible images.
  • Ricardo Jacinto - artist, musician or architect, founding member and current artistic director of OSSO and hold a PhD from the Sonic Arts Research Center, Queens University Belfast. Since 1998 present work in individual and collective exhibitions, concerts and performances in Portugal and Europe. His artistic research has been focused on the intersection of sonic, visual and spatial poetics of territoriality and nomadism within transdisciplinar and post-disciplinary contexts and hybridity of public presentation formats. Alongside the notion of frontier or limit, most of his works (from music to installations or architectures) have taken the Labirynth as a guiding metaphor for the establishment of a desorietating and vertiginous spatiality as a key element on the definition of a topography for his poesis.
