British artist Susan Collins’s work draws upon classical landscape traditions in painting to create digital works which unfold in real time.
A development on from the success of previous projects, including Fenlandia, this project generates a series of gradually unfolding, beautiful digital seascapes created by images captured from webcams overlooking the sea, sited at different locations along the south east coast of the UK. The webcams are sited in each location for a period of 6-12 months, recording at different rates over the course of the year.
Each image is constructed from data collected from top to bottom and left to right in horizontal bands continuously, marking visible fluctuations in light and movement throughout the day and being archived at regular intervals. At any one time, the viewer experiences a different version of the image as the pixels change and the piece evolves.
