In 2017, Seth Lower became allergic to pixels. When using screens, Lower began experiencing visual artifacts and bouts of vertigo, creating a crisis not only within his artistic practice but also one of social and economic mobility. In 2018, the Palais des Beaux Arts acquired 838 of Lower’s Instagram posts, a site he has used to explore threads of absence and autobiography since 2014. The tyranny of images, in this case internalized physically by Lower, inevitably becomes a subject of his Instagram practice while he negotiates with the format of the screen for his health.
