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.
Born in Rivers, Manitoba, Tate is currently based in British Columbia where in 2019 he completed a suite of four new films: Sensors - Carbon Sky - Furnace - Cornucopia. During the last four years he filmed the interior of British Columbia, observing and recording the interactions of shadow and light on display in its dynamic, every changing landscapes. In this time over 25000 square kilometres of land has been destroyed during two record breaking wildfire seasons.
