Human Error : A Marriage Between Computer Metaphors and the Human Emotions

Artist Victoria Siemer showcases human emotions in various situations in her art series  Human Error.

Human Error is an ongoing series of polaroid photos, with  pop-up notification superimposed on the images.

The pop-up notification is a mock-up of a real one you'd see pop on your computer screen when an error occurs, confirming an action, or displaying a process update. However, Siemer replaces the phrases in those pop-ups with messages about feelings, heartbreak and moving on, to name a few.

The aesthetic imagery of human emotions and the pop-up notification is appealing. The decisions we take in consideration of our emotions - the choice to ignore, continue, or cancel are somewhat captured by the edited notification pop-ups.
