Computers know us more intimately than lovers — but this is a lopsided relationship. What do we know of the operating systems that drive our daily fix?

Our computers know us more intimately than lovers — but this is a lopsided relationship. Behind their user-friendly facades, what do we know of the operating systems that drive our daily fix? This isn't a performance about identity; it’s about identity theft.

What happens inside the computer if we see it instead as a theatre machine, a mechanism of infinite purposes rather than a ready-made, and what news might the operator bring back for the rest of us?

Error in Time is a performance whose character enters into her daily computer routine. The coded content of her screen is projected upstage. Networked presences, dancing, file searching and parsing are the main scenes of action. sister0 weaves her story via performative algorithms and types in a surreal first person narrative touching on subjects from Ophelia and dark matter to rogue bots.
