Why does my screen go blue when things go wrong ?
Blue has invaded our digital lives with a strong symbolism and its expressive nuances. As citizens of the internet today, we all know the difference between a problematic blue and a blue designed to make up the safe space of a social network.
\x80 is the max() quantity of hexadecimal blue >> from loose cables, the color of wikipedia links, to the iconic “blue screen of death” (BSOD), blue represents a default setting, a fallback option when all other blues fail.
Blue \x80 strives to start over, pushing to the fore the relationship we have with machines without proprietary interface, thus leaving room for a free association between physical and digital bodies.
With the ever changing forms of new media art and its role in society, we wish to record and curate not only glitch momentums, but open interpretations and emotional responses to the theme and event title.
