We used to be responsible for our own typographical errors. Now, in a general trend to outsource our mental function to global prosthetic brain, advanced predictive text software have taken over. "Geocentric” becomes “egocentric”, “ill” turns to “I’ll” and “id” to “I’d”, turning any communication into a Freudian slip at the slightest touch or click. People blame Autocorrect for mangling their intentions. And they blame Autocorrect for failing to un-mangle them.
Autocorrect is overwhelmed by our vocabulary. Every mutation is a persistent or acknowledged mistake, exceptions to the rule make language evolve. When the suggested change revolutions the original meaning, the mistake allows us to see reality from another angle, funnier usually, embarrassing sometimes, tragic, or even poetic. It allows us to think again.
A similar process takes place for an artist in front of his work: an artwork is a major correction. Any creative process involves risks, disruptions or surprises that cancel each other, erase or integrate new meaning. An author corrects his mistakes, autocorrects them and incorporates them into a new reality. The exhibition is an invitation to meaningful mistakes, to disrupt the expected and the established. Every artwork is a spelling mistake.
