Content Desert
The Work
♫Mixes♫

 

Twenty XX is pleased to announce the release of
Content Desert, a book that collects the 2-D graphic work of artist Mark Price.

 

 

The collection’s title presages an almost
unfathomably absurd question to pose in 2017,
“What would a moment without content look like?”

 


Content Desert is a post-internet object, a journey through graphic refuse amassed and extruded over several stylized chapters. The book brings together a multitude of hijacked glyphs, damaged vectors, stolen sentiments, and product mockups reimagined and recontextualized at the moment of content’s obsolescence. The resulting volume of deeply compromised images occupies a liminal space in the world of intelligibility.

Through the transformation of once-was content into high contrast and stylized detritus, Content Desert is an envoy from yesterday to tomorrow, delivering its anti-message through deconstructed forms, abandoned logos, and nonfunctional iconography, operating as though it were reliant on a befuddled and obtuse navigation application.

The 450-plus pages of Content Desert anachronously proceed from it’s obnoxious tag line of “1,000,0000 years of broken graphics…
load more, know less”.
