error log

By Hei Lam Ng

Artist's Note

Error log tells the fictional legends of characters residing in the Kingdom of Broken Divs. The story is inspired by the artist's experience in attending a New Media & Web Development program at BCIT. This project is originally self-published in artist's book form. Each chapter of the book is present side-by-side in coding mode and visual mode, where the visual mode is the supposed outcome of the pseudocode.
