Humans and their Errors (illustrated edition)

34,99 

Humans and their Errors is a philosophical answer to big and small questions from an engineer turned artist. The author shares his existential bugs and glitches, his scientific and metaphysical wanderings and their consequences for material, virtual and after lives.

It is a constantly reworked collection of philosophical texts, digital artworks, geometrical diagrams and thought experiments. It is also the perpetuation of an “ontological error”, at once beautiful and incorrigible, that the artist keeps making in his art installations, moving images and virtual worlds, and that we all make by the simple fact of our existence.
