Movies like 'Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind' and 'Her' invite people to consider what life would be like if technology was so advanced it could effect people on a deeply emotional level; Human Error by Victoria Siemer explores this concept further through the use of imagined computer error messages. For instance, one reads, "Reminder now: Someday you will be dead," while another asks, "Are you sure you want to erase all feelings?"

Human Error by Victoria Siemer, a graphic designer based in New York City, digitally overlays these messages on top of abstract polaroids that enhance not only each message, but the mood as well. By pairing new technology with old, she combines the idea of nostalgia with the multitude of other emotions inherent in modern relationships.
