Kent Tate – Landing Sites

Featured Member Works – Kent Tate – “Landing Sites”

Moving Images & sound design: Kent Tate. There are places that we seek, and there are places that find us. One can never know for sure which comes first; the seeking or the finding. Often the unexpected moment occurs, the unforeseen discovery. 

Watch here…

Landing Sites: House on a truck – Car drifting on a flooded plain – Signs flying over a lake – A super storm engulfs a building – Ghost train – Lightening strikes a plywood structure – Rail yard secured by a fire fighter – Electrical discharge in central city – Outskirts of prairie dog town. The full versions of these scenes range from 2 min. to 5 min. in length. Source footage shot on location in southern Saskatchewan. The exception is the now extinct Dunes Casino sign which I filmed in Las Vegas, Nevada before it was imploded.

Kent Tate is an award winning Canadian artist/filmmaker whose work explores the dichotomy between tranquility and activity in our natural and manufactured worlds.

Time, motion and stillness are intertwined through Tate’s work to act like a fulcrum upon which the environmental, social and philosophical aspects of his projects are held in dynamic balance.

Tate has been exhibited/screened internationally at film/new media festivals, symposiums, juried screenings/exhibitions, and solo gallery exhibitions/tours.
