Err/or Mural

Errors are part and parcel with making things of any kind. In old French (errer) it also means β€œto wander.” Mistakes, errors, glitches or whatever you want to call them aren't always something to be taken as inherently bad. Instead, they can be the best learning moments and a window to unexplored possibilities.

The word "error" in this mural outside the Analog Lab in Facebook's San Francisco office is meant as a pun β€” to point out the glitches in the rendering, in the imperfectness of something hand-painted, and also how the division in the word acts as an open-ended question itself.

The companion mural added down the hall and which greets visitors to the floor offers a different take β€” the sweeping motion of disruption: sometimes beautiful, sometimes unpredictable, or even dangerous in how it can mesmerize us so the real effects escape our view.
