Latham Zearfoss

WEBSITE IN PROGRESS :: My old web-building platform abruptly shut down and I am in the middle of rebuilding. If there's anything you need or want to see/hear in the meantime, please hit me up or find me on YouTube, Vimeo and Soundcloud.

Latham Zearfoss produces time-based images and objects about selfhood and otherness. Often collaborative, these works ask: how do we come to know ourselves as social human subjects? Across media, the work is anchored in the belief that identity is a cumulative, political effect, inherited through a kind of collective bargaining. These themes find evocative, sensual resonances through dramatic shifts in color and light, reverberating soundscapes populated by disembodied voices, queer iterations of the not-noticed and everyday, and “soft borders” - spatial markings of undetermined significance that invite participation, transgression, even penetration.
