Writing the Error

In Pursuit of Error is a practice research project which evolves through theorizing the nature of the error in photography, and, more broadly, the ideology of the ‘mistake’ in visual culture.  Through analyzing the images and narratives that are contributed to the project, I have developed several strands of inquiry, resulting in papers and articles which have been published and presented nationally and internationally.
