User Group Disco 2009
This work is the second video in Price’s series ‘New, Ruined Institute’. Each episode in the series takes place in a different room within a fictional institution created by the artist. ‘User Group Disco’ is set in the Hall of Sculptures, although only a series of mundane objects and utensils are visible, swirling in a black void. There is no evident architecture or human presence. Text flashes up on the screen which builds a narrative about these objects, the institution which holds them and the desire for consumerism. The work is accompanied by an immersive soundtrack developed especially for the video.
