“Update error” is a video essay that looks into the concept of being up-to-date in the context of constantly changing world we live in. In the centre of this reflection there is a human; his environment and the tools he may use to develop and explore his surroundings.The work builds on the convention of a nature film in which one creation, a computer, is being examined in the context of the impact human activities have on our surroundings.The film touches upon the issues of of black ecology, technological development and politicization of almost every sphere of human life. The narration itself follows a specified pattern which, at the semantic level, brings together both the natural history and the history and structure of the programming language.
