    Video stills and installation images from Nowhere Voyage (from Cruising Studies) exhibited at NOW? NOW! at the Museum of Contemporary Art Denver, July-August, 2015.

    In November last year, Adam Milner went on the first-ever cruise organized by Grindr, a mobile app that calls itself a "gay, same sex, bi social network," and uses location services to connect users to one another for immediate, physical meet-ups.

    The cruise, Milner writes: "conflated the digital and physical modes of queer encounters, taking the digital networked experience one step further and giving it a physical place, or more accurately, a non-place." Drawing from an anthropological perspective of participatory observation, Milner performed inside the experience as well as outside of it, as he documented it and created a non-linear film and set of objects that recount and examine the phenomenon.
