Data Rush

Nate Larson & Marni Shindelman

Geolocation (2009-present)

With their collaborative projects, Nate Larson and Marni Shindelman examine the data that we generate on online communication networks. For GEOLOCATION, Larson and Shindelman used publicly accessible GPS information in Twitter messages in order to track the physical location of the tweet. Each photograph was taken in the exact same spot where the message was sent into the world, quoting the text of the message. The photographs anchor and commemorate the fleeting online data in the real world. At the same time, they also question the expected privacy of these online networks.
