Seth Lower has become allergic to pixels. When using screens, Lower has been experiencing optical migraines 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 began collecting the most and least liked portions of Lower’s Instagram feed, a site he has used to explore threads of absence and autobiography since 2014. The images that move to the Palais des Beaux Arts collection must be removed from Instagram, the site of his work spreading between the two platforms.
