Wade Guyton (b. 1972, Indiana), Seth Price (b. 1973, Jerusalem), Josh Smith (b. 1976, Tennessee) and Kelley Walker (b. 1969, Georgia) work both together and apart in New York. They are not a formal artists group but the heart of a scene, ever changing: Guyton and Walker have organized joint exhibitions, and all four realize joint projects in varying constellations, often with other artists and theorists. This, their first book together, is another collaborative work. In it, they squeeze canvases through inkjet printers, paint over digitally altered media images with chocolate, scan freshly chopped fruits and vegetables and make recycling emblems into gold-plated sculptures. They sample unidentified music, text and images; photocopy their names hundreds of times over and otherwise torment every conceivable technology of our everyday digital lives with unsuitable materials and equally unsuitable applications--a dynamic post-Pop take on the influence of artistic strategies through advertising, the media and the everyday.
