OK/Cancel
The prints in the series OK/Cancel are based on the ubiquitous dialog boxes that appear whenever we open, save, close, delete, or do anything at all with the files on our computers. These messages are some of the most direct communications between user and operating system, and although they often seem helpful, they tend towards a certain arrogance, making them ripe for satire. Each print is available in any of four different operating systems (each current at the time): Macintosh OS 9, Macintosh OS X, Microsoft Windows 98, and Microsoft Windows XP.
