This project is about how we perceive failure. Everyday small failings reflect ‘mishappenings’: of communication and dialogue, of what happens between humans, and of what happens between humans and their natures, including machines. I can identify and empathise with these mishappenings, and when I set out to document a few of my performative interactions with the so-called ‘flawed’ as a way to address our shared experiences and tensions around intimate connections, it became an exercise to try and understand the ununderstandable.
You can see the book that I made for this project here.
The sound piece for mishappenings can be heard here.
