Nate Larson (b. 1978, West Lafayette, IN, USA) is a contemporary artist working with photographic media, artist books, and digital video. My work has been widely shown across the United States and featured internationally in Canada, Portugal, Poland, Russia, Hungary, Australia, the Netherlands, Greece, Belgium, the UK, and Spain. I teach at the Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore and will chair the 2014 national conference of the Society for Photographic Education. My full academic CV and my short artist resume are available.
My current photographic series, ESCAPE ROUTES and CIVIL WAR WITNESS TREES, were selected as finalists for the 2013 Sondheim Prize and will be featured in an exhibition at the Walters Art Museum in Baltimore this summer.
In summer 2013, my collaborator Marni Shindelman and I will be artists-in-residence at the Robert Rauschenberg Foundation, premiere a site-specific video artwork in the Indianapolis International Airport, and mount a GEOLOCATION exhibition at the Orlando Museum of Art.
GEOLOCATION, in collaboration with Marni Shindelman, tracks geotag coordinates associated with Twitter tweets and pairs the text with a photograph of the originating site to mark the virtual information in the real world. New site-specific work from the series was recently completed for Third Space Gallery in New Brunswick, the Walter N. Marks Center for the Arts in California, and the Format International Photography Festival in the UK. We recently completed a site-specific series of nine digital billboards and video pieces on the MARTA trains for the Atlanta Celebrates Photography Public Art Commission. The project is also included in the final issue of Aspect: The Chronicle of New Media Art. Learn more about our projects at www.larson-shindelman.com.
Numerous publications and media outlets have featured my projects, including most recently Wired Magazine, Colors Magazine, Hyperallergic, Gizmodo, The Picture Show from NPR, Discover Magazine, VICE Magazine, and Fotograf Magazine. Other highlights include the New York Times Lens Blog, the British Journal of Photography (first & second), Utne Reader, The Washington Post, Flavorwire, the BBC News Viewfinder, Frieze Magazine, APM Marketplace Tech Report, Art Papers, C Magazine, Exposure, The New York Times, and Afterimage.

As you might have noticed, I'm in the process of rebooting my website, so in the meantime, check out my collaborative work at www.larson-shindelman.com.
