Magnetic Eels by Brea Souders

35.00

Brea Souders’ new book, Magnetic Eels, features photographs of glass fragments that she has traced from images liked by people in her social media network. The book depicts a necessarily fragmented and compellingly kaleidoscopic world, one that explores themes of mass surveillance, unseen algorithms, and visual disorientation. The result is a series that uncovers and spotlights modern iterations of the essential human desire for connection. Layering the various shards of glass into sometimes-simple, sometimes-complex collages of line, color, and glass, Souders photographs the arrangements to create odd hybrids of photography, drawing, and sculpture. The project is a prism of a prism. As such, though it is based solely on existing photographs, the book presents an alternate world from that of its source, and in its form pushes us toward conclusions to questions yet to be posed.
