2018 Martha Strawn Lecture:
Nate Larson and Marni Shindelman

Thursday, May 3 / 6:30 – 8:30 PM

The Light Factory is excited to present Nate Larson and Marni Shindelman for this year’s annual Martha Strawn Lecture. The two fine art photographers have collaborated for the last ten years, working over distance and through site-specific projects. Their collaborative practice investigates the data tracks we amass through networked communication, tying the invisible to actual sites while anchoring the ephemeral in photographs and immersive video installations. Their most well-known project, Geolocation, traces Twitter posts to the point of origin and makes a photograph to mark the location in the real world, probing the expectations of privacy surrounding social networks. The project was published in book form in 2016.
