Scott Price is currently undertaking study at Curtin University, and is the winner of Perth Centre for Photography's Uncover award for emerging photomedia artists. His first solo exhibition, 'Surface Tension', opened at PCP on 10th December 2015.
His talk focused on the concept behind 'Surface Tension', and what he believes to be his motivation behind pursuing the kind of works he has done. The exhibition explored working with the physical aspects of photographs as objects, and trying to develop an interaction between the image and the physical object. Scott would like to relate this concept, and his motivation, back to what he considers to be a larger movement among emerging photographic artists interested in the physicality of photographs. His belief is that this is linked to the way we now experience and consume images in a purely digital form; there are many photographers (particularly among younger people) that are trying to figure out how traditional art photography (in terms of how it is displayed and disseminated in galleries) fits in to this new mode of experiencing photography. For Scott this has manifested in an interest in somewhat gestalt elements of perception in relation to photographs.
