Sometimes, software bugs create accidental art.

This is a place for those bugs: an enthusiastic embrace of mistakes, a celebration of emergent beauty.

Welcome to the Museum of Pretty Bugs, an exhibition of accidental computer art.

@r_prettybugs will notify you of new acquisitions.

Posting Guidelines

  1. Have a pretty (software) bug. This can be your own content, or you can post other people's pretty bugs.
  2. Think of a pretentious, artsy title!
  3. Submit a link. For best results, link directly to an image/video/audio file or use Reddit's image upload function. If that's not possible, feel free to link to a website.
  4. For the title, use the following format: Artist Name – Artwork Title (Date)
    You can also use the artist's nickname.
  5. Tell the bug's story in a comment. What were you trying to do? What went wrong? If it's not your bug, please link to the original source.

Please be polite and constructive when posting in this subreddit. Abusive, harassing, or otherwise inappropriate behavior will not be tolerated.
