We are often confronted with our displays (whether they are televisions or computers) showing a “no signal” error on their screen. Although one of the easiest errors to fix, most people still have trouble navigating the un-standardized array of monitor and television firmware that are out there. Despite the plethora of user manuals, training videos, and booklets, people are continually unable to find a signal on their displays. NoSGNL is a modified monitor that continually changes the chosen signal to an empty source or “No Signal”. Despite the user’s best intentions to connect their device to the display, NoSGNL will constantly show a “No Signal” indicator forcing them to try again. This form of “Human Error” remains a mainstay in the world of consumer electronics and hardware devices. NoSGNL is one of a series of my works in the area of “Human Error”.
