Solo Exhibition Reviewed in The Guardian

The Guardian / Observer

My solo exhibition, Software for Less at arebyte Gallery in London, was reviewed in The Guardian / Observer. The article, titled How artist Ben Grosser is cutting Mark Zuckerberg down to size, walks through a number of my works, talking about ORDER OF MAGNITUDE, Facebook and Twitter Demetricator, Go Rando, and ScareMail, as well as new commissioned works premiered at arebyte such as DEFICIT OF LESS and Minus.

It’s a great text with a number of rather stunning quotes from author Tim Adams:

“When the history of the first decades of this century comes to be written, there will be few more telling artworks than Ben Grosser’s film Order of Magnitude … a mesmerising monologue, the story of our times.”

“The Zuckerberg films are exhibit A in a series of projects that have made Grosser perhaps the most usefully hands-on of all critics of social media.”

“[Grosser is] a one-man corrective to the data-driven world in which we all now find ourselves; his art highlights its limitations.“
