Summary/Abstract: The author considers the acceptance of an error by the author (creator) as a deliberate act of creating visual space. It is an error used as a trick in the context of the medium of photography and film. Musiał considers selected examples in which the medium of the film utilizes a number of autonomous means of expression, technologies and visualization techniques that have been developed over the decades by the medium of photography. In this article, the topic of camera-free images, stroboscopic and afterimage effects, negative images, using archive images and remixing them, and images created by photo-chemical, electromagnetic or digital faults are discussed. Aesthetics of error is a kind of creative approach to creation that is based on the destruction and reduction of the essential function of the medium (i.e. faithful documentation). Trick images based on faults and errors express the desire for the overarching goal of finding visual phenomena dormant in the medium itself and in the manner of subjective recording and transformation of information about the surrounding world.
