Exception Handling is the first graduation show of the Piet Zwart Institute’s newly expanded Media Design and Communication programme. Bringing together the previously distinct disciplines of Networked and Lens-Based digital media, the show presents the work of students working across an expanded range of disciplines.
Exception Handling is a term for a particular procedure in writing computer code; Wikipedia defines it as: “The process of responding to the occurrence, during computation, of exceptions – anomalous or exceptional situations requiring special processing – often changing the normal flow of program execution”

An internet-based radio station where the secluded utopian nature of the radio broadcast is seen through the medium of audible codes. At certain intervals, the radio station will broadcast several methods of audible coding during a sound-collage radio show. At other times, it may broadcast only a single code, the remnants of a live show, or music that contains a hidden or encrypted message.
