Katie Hallam

United Kingdom


Katie Hallam’s photography is known as 'The Beautiful Error’. She explores the construction and deconstructing of digital image data, coding, pixels and the ‘glitches’ that can occur in our technological experiences in everyday life. Hallam’s collections explore the question: Is it the technology itself that is the cause of ‘the beautiful error’ or our own hand that forces the interruption? The original photographs are rewritten, deliberately corrupted and then edited further through processes which stem from computer hardware, apps, operating systems and data coding. The results are unique and random and often give an appreciated aesthetic that encourage viewers to capture otherwise unnoticed details through pixels, colour and composition.
