Error Aesthetic 

The Aesthetics of Failure’s 10 basic principles:

1. Failure is a shade of beauty born from imperfection – yet is a portrayal of perfection

2. Failure is an involuntary consciousness – as well as a manner of comprehending and apprehending reality

3. Failure is organic – never a deliberate mechanical process or a technical effect alone

4. Failure arises from life itself – it reveals the surreal that emerges from the real

5. Failure tends to blend and shift focus – from background to foreground at will

6. Failure exists both as minute detail and as a big picture – size and scale are human concepts

7. Failure is the product of what already exists – it handles transformation as a method of conservation

8. Failure deconstructs to unveil complexity – only if there’s such complexity to be unveiled

9. Failure is shapeless and timeless – yet it tends to be recursive

10. Failure is ungraspable and random – it is unpredictable yet precise
