three channel video installation
camera, sound - Seth Nehil
dancers - Leah Wilmoth, Kelly Rauer
Locate was commissioned by Disjecta Contemporary Art Center for the PORTLAND2014 Biennial of Contemporary Art curated by Amanda Hunt. In Locate, a disorienting array of movement amid deep black is presented across three synchronized video channels. The camera moves and dances with the performers while patterns and stark colors vibrate against the eyes. Illuminating bodies slowly and quickly undulate in and out of obscurity.

Locate was funded in part by Disjecta Contemporary Art Center and by generous donations to fund a Technology Share Program that I started to meet the technological needs of this exhibition as well as the needs of my local community of working artists.
