Soda’s new show is composed of twenty new works created in a selection of digital platforms, including NewHive, GIFs and videos. In fact, the digital public is where it’s at for the Detroit-based digital artist—taking the private behaviours of girls in their bedrooms, making them public, and evaluating the consequences, both for the individuals and the consuming public.
The combination of “tween Tumblr aesthetic”, kitsch and “lowbrow internet culture” with a kind of unmade-but-made confessionalism is what creates intimacy—that and the recreation of Soda’s own bedroom within the walls of the gallery.
