The Halsey Institute presents "Geolocation" by the artist duo of Nate Larson and Marni Shindelman. Using publicly-accessible geographic data from tweets, Larson Shindelman track down specific locations where Twitter users were when they posted on social media. Once there, the artists make a photograph from the location, connecting the tweet-stored on a remote server and readable around the globe-and the physical world. This body of work explores the connection between text and images, digital and analog, and private versus public.
