Failure is Becoming, 2014 is a digital photocollage comprised of vernacular photographs of the streets of Lower Manhattan, rephotography of computer monitors, and a unique handmade darkroom printing process. During the course of this work, required computational processes met the limit of their capabilities, resulting in crash screens, glitches, wireframes and other errors. All aforementioned were photographically reingested and incorporated, as a literal and figurative attempt at rescuing the work, until a new composition was reached. As a final transformation, the collage is transferred to 8x10 film, and a unique print is made by hand from this transparency.
