“Human Error” Is What Heartache Looks Like To The 21st Century
Brooklyn-based graphic designer Victoria Spencer, who also goes by Witchoria, has a clever way of expressing heartache. Her ongoing Human Error series merges both old and new motifs, creating an experience that’s unique but oh-so familiar.
Using simple Polaroid photos she conveys the limits of depression, self-loathing, and heartbreak by combining them with Apple error messages. The juxtaposition is striking, merging the cold language of technology with the human experience.
If you’re on Tumblr you’ve probably stumbled across her work on more than one occasion. But what you might not know is that you can view her complete series on her Behance page. She also sells prints on Society6.
