Based in Canada, Kent Tate is an award winning artist/filmmaker whose work explores the dichotomy between tranquility and activity in our natural and manufactured worlds. Time, motion and stillness are intertwined through Kent’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 selected to screen internationally at film/new media festivals and symposiums as well as a wide range of tours and group/solo exhibitions.
For Tate, his movies are roadmaps for navigating various separate yet coexisting worlds, places where he imagines worlds that have passed, worlds that are present, and worlds that are yet to be.
