404. The number of the beast on the Internet. It means whatever you’re looking for is missing or possibly gone forever.
But there’s a certain magic to the 404 page.
Two artists, along with Vice Motherboard, have turned the worst webpage in the world into a work of bizarre art.
The 404error.gallery is a chance to see how far the 404 error could be taken. According to Motherboard, the 404error gallery was designed by artists and lecturer at the University of South Wales Matthew Britton and his friend Brett O’Connor. They “gave artists a week to respond to the concept of designing a 404 error page. The artist replies are now part of the ongoing archive at the 404error gallery online and there's 17 ace designs so far.”
