Nate Larson Live and In Person at Woodbridge NOVA Wednesday, April 3 at 7 PM

Nate Larson, who collaborates often with Marni Shindelman, conceives of projects that make my eye sockets gyrate and flares up the tendonitis in my i-phone hand.  Gail Rebhan of the Woodbridge NOVA puts it much more eloquently:

Nate Larson is primarily known for his collaboration with photographer Marni Shindelman. Their GEOLOCATION project tracks geotag coordinates associated with Twitter tweets and pairs the text with a photograph of the originating site to mark the virtual information in the real world. In 2012 they won a Public Art Commission from Atlanta Celebrates Photography. Working with sponsorship from CBS Outdoors, they secured nine digital billboard sites around the Atlanta metro area. They looked at tweets coming from a half-mile radius of the billboards and the tweet text and their photographs were in rotation on the billboards for the month of October. They also produced two 15-second videos for the MARTA public trains, which aired on video screens for the same month. More than a million viewers in Atlanta saw the project. They also installed a six-channel video on the exterior windows of the Digital Arts Entertainment Lab (DAEL) at Georgia State University. They are working with the Indianapolis International Airport to produce a new public art piece using tweets in the airport.

Nate Larson is a full time faculty member in the photography department at Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore. His work with photographic media, artist books and digital video has been widely shown across the US and internationally. Numerous publications and media outlets have featured his projects, including the New York Times, Utne Reader, Hotshoe Magazine, Flavorwire, the BBC News Viewfinder, Frieze Magazine, the British Journal of Photography, Marketplace Tech Report, The Washington Post, and Art Papers. Larson’s photoworks and artist books are included in the collections of the Portland Museum of Art, the Museum of Fine Arts Houston, the Cleveland Institute of Arts, the Center for Photography at Woodstock, and the Museum of Contemporary Photography Chicago. He currently serves on the board of directors of the Society for Photographic Education.
