Why does my screen go blue when things go wrong ?

Blue has invaded our digital lives with a strong symbolism and its expressive nuances. As citizens of the internet today, we all know the difference between a problematic blue and a blue designed to make up the safe space of a social network.
x80 is the max() quantity of hexadecimal blue >> from loose cables, the color of wikipedia links, to the iconic blue screen of death (BSOD), blue represents a default setting, a fallback option when all other blues fail.
Blue \x80 strives to start over, pushing to the fore the relationship we have with machines without proprietary interface, thus leaving room for a free association between physical and digital bodies.
