Human Error (Ongoing Series) by Victoria Siemer

Brooklyn-based graphic designer, Victoria Siemer, turns computer notifications into deeply personal and emotional alerts in her ongoing Digital World vs Real Life image series “Human Error”. The error message prompts the viewer for an action or to wait, illustrating the futility of this technological exercise when perceived in the context of heartbreak or ennui. Siemer’s series elegantly pairs new technology, represented by the computerized message, with older technology, represented by the vintage mode of a Polaroid photograph, combining the nostalgia evoked by a Polaroid with the technological angst that fuels many of our modern relationships.
