A Lecture by Nate Larson

Nate Larson is one half of a collaborative artistic duo with Marni Shindelman. Using location coordinates of posts made by users of Twitter, Larson and Shindleman go to the places where each “tweet” originated and make a photograph of what they find there.

We use publicly available embedded GPS information in Twitter updates to track the locations of user posts and make photographs to mark the location in the real world. Each of these photographs is taken on the site of the update and paired with the originating text. Our act of making a photograph anchors and memorializes the ephemeral online data in the real world and also probes the expectations of privacy surrounding social networks.

As a society, we strive for means to abate a loneliness that seems exasperated by an increasingly overly connected culture. Cell phones and instant messaging have simultaneously made us more connected virtually and lonelier than ever

Art Department Visiting Artist Series Presents
Nate Larson: Geotagging the Omissions

This Geotagging the Omissions workshop empowers participants to create and upload photographic documentation of overlooked communities to Google maps, building a public document of the community from within. This workshop empowers communities to define their own online identities, ponder the ghostly data trails that we leave behind, and to interrogate the nature of privacy in the digital age. All are invited to participate. Participants should bring their smartphones; for those who don’t have smartphones, digital cameras may be used. Also, guests without either device, or not interested in participating in the workshop, may join us.
