Margin of Error

Price: $19.95

By Matthew Abess

The narratives of industrial modernity that emerged in the nineteenth century rely on a language of visual understanding. Margin of Error considers a series of instances in which the visionary promise of mechanical improvement is confounded by practical limits and unforeseen outcomes. From glass-house fires and electrified bodies to vehicular hazards and workplace perils, this richly illustrated volume surveys the patterns of optical disruption that are a chief characteristic of technological times.

Margin of Error No. 3 in a series of publications focused on core themes in The Wolfsonian’s collection.
