Seth Price: Social Synthetic

The catalogue is the first comprehensive publication on Price's varied ouevre. It offers an unflinching portrait of contemporary, mediated Western life. A key theme in Price's work is the self under technological pressure. This is often expressed in terms of the "skins" of surface, packaging, and wrapping: a photographic study of a person’s skin obtained through the technologies Google employs for mapping; a vacuum-formed plastic relief presenting a body part stranded in plastic; a large wall sculpture depicting the negative space between two people engaged in intimate action, greatly enlarged from a tiny internet jpeg.
