Surface Tension

solo show | Mills College Art Museum 5000 MacArthur Blvd, Oakland California
by Tabitha Soren

Description

Tabitha Soren's photographs visualize how we touch and are touched by technology in new and unexpected ways. Her series, SURFACE TENSION, maps the fingerprints and residue left on our devices as a result of incessant daily use. These marks, which we routinely ignore or erase, trace our actions, gestures, and increasingly, are evidence of our fleeting attention. . Beneath the marks, Soren reveals images from the endless scroll of digital culture: the harmful touch of police violence, the resistance against social injustice, the human touch that causes irreversible environmental damage; the long-distance virtual touch of a loved one. The exhibition confronts the daily struggle between the technological and the personal, drawing a connection between what troubles us and what distracts us. It includes a Narcissus video and sculpture room as well as a site-specific hanging sculpture of 15 mirrored photographs commissioned for this exhibit.
