Nate Larson + Marni Shindelman, Worth the Wait (2011)

The Scrimshaw Visiting Artist Fund logo
Co-sponsored by the Opalka Gallery and the Department of Art + Design.

Nate Larson and Marni Shindelman’s collaborative practice investigates the data tracks we amass through networked communication. Their work ties the invisible to actual sites, anchoring the ephemeral in photographs and immersive video installations.

Their work is in the permanent collection of the High Museum of Art Atlanta, Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art, Museum of Fine Arts Houston, Orlando Museum of Art, and the Portland Art Museum. They won the 2016 John Gutmann Fellowship for their #Gratitude project produced during their residency with CEC Artslink in Russia.

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.
