Artist’s Talk: Tabitha Soren


Tabitha Soren’s Surface Tension intervenes into our cool, disembodied, transactional relationships with digital devices—and meddles with the “neutrality” of the information we receive through them. Soren shoots iPad screens with an 8 x 10 view camera under raking light to reveal the grime we leave behind—the fingerprints and greasy smears of our embodied selves, so seemingly at odds with the chilly detachment and objectivity of the information that flows towards us, unrelentingly. The photographs are titled simply as urls, bringing viewers back to the “original” of the image. Rendered with painterly detail, the project considers “how people consume, manipulate, dismiss, cherish, interact with image-driven content online—and the relentless layering that accompanies this experience.”
