Wife texts husband: “Windows frozen, what do I do?” husband texts back: “Pour some lukewarm water over it”. Wife: “Gee thanks, now the computer is ruined!”

In 2013 a University of Auckland server went down meaning that the Window website was inaccessible. This meant that for half a year the online exhibitions scheduled could not take place. Even after the server was operational many people had bookmarked broken links so that the Window website appeared to be down for an even longer period of time.

In response to this incident the current Window curators asked Auckland-based artist Sonya Lacey to make a kind of place-holder that users will encounter in the event that the website does go down again. Lacey has responded with a range of media including jokes, apparel and text.
