Artist Statement:


    Error 502 404 410 enhances the audio qualities of a server error. The rarely noticed sounds that accompany technical errors are normally not perceived in terms of aesthetics. In this work, a variety of hard disk errors or connection failures become audible. The names of the errors are engraved on the surface of the disks, determining how the disks will turn. The work reveals a kind of cognitive dissonance that is derived from reflecting on error as a feature of the computer as a cultural machine.
