The internet was invented as the ultimate standard; it is literally made of rules. Online content abides by some intentional and unintentional rules, and texture, smell, weight, flavour, and time are flattened together for the screen. Computers appear to instantaneously transform objects into images and meaning into information.
404 ERROR: The object is not online brings together questionably digitized materials with undoubtedly material digital systems to explore the translation of objects into online representations. It uses objects from the CCA collection to examine the shift, and to explore some differences between seemingly limitless cyberspace and the museum where presence and real space are the rule.
Curator: Lev Bratishenko, CCA.
Graphic design: Rumors, Brooklyn.
