Description

Video & Music: Kent Tate. Arc-Funnel-Velocity (work in progress) The finished movies are meant to be viewed as individual scenes, or either as cinematic sequences. The works can be shown with sound, or in silence. In July 2015 I had an Artist residency at the Gushel in Crowsnest Pass, Alberta to begin an intensive visual investigation of Crowsnest mountain. This was the originating step towards creating a video/sculptural project that interconnects my lifelong fascination with the Prairies, the mountains, and the ocean. The next step took place on the east coast of Vancouver Island near Nanaimo where I documented reference points that both connects and contradicts the subtle and the obscure, the self evident along with that which is not easily apparent. The third step is to continue filming in the Cypress hills region of Saskatchewan with the goal of building a large outdoor sculpture (film projection chamber). Artist Statement: My role as an artist is to infuse beauty as an act of defiance. To challenge and satiate perception with a passionate purposeful gaze. Filmed on location by Kent Tate: Cypress Hills, Saskatchewan - Departure Bay, British Columbia - Crowsnest Mountain, Alberta.
