The Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art will host its next in-person gallery, Larson Shindelman: Geolocation, Jan. 15-March 5. The body of work, according to the Halsey, explores the connection between text and image and public versus private.
Artistic duo Nate Larson and Marni Shindelman assembled the exhibit using Twitter. Utilizing publicly accessible geographic data from tweets, the artists tracked down locations where a Twitter user posted something. Once there, they took pictures of each location and printed it with the tweet at the bottom of the picture.
Larson and Shindelman’s work in the past has investigated data tracks through networked communication. Larson is a photographer based in Baltimore who creates expanded documentary projects, while Shindelman is an associate professor of photography at the Lamar Dodd School of Art at the University of Georgia.
Admission to Geolocation is free. Hours and more info can be found at the Halsey’s website.
