Join us for the Los Angeles launch of Seth Lower's new book units 'Units' with an indepth discussion between the artist and Graham Harman, Distinguished Professor of Philosophy at SCI-Arc in LA.
'Units' presents a thoughtful, often playful, look at our relationship to the objects around us. A sign swallowed by tree bark, a small collection of funnels, a stove for sale in the sunshine. Where does one unit end and the other begin?
