Velocity; Trying To Imagine Time From Everyone Else's Perspective While Driving Around, All At Once. 2004 (Now offline)
Live traffic CCTV cameras are networked into this online artwork experience presented as an artwork by Stanza. The multiple perspective of the ever present is relayed back to the screen as a painterly film like system. The world exists to us in the present and this artwork seeks to remain ever in the moment while at the same time allowing a multi point perspective of other experiences elsewhere. These artwork is about the manipulation of networked data and the re appropriation of content to make pother content in this case a series of traffic feeds. NB when this started in 2004 there where over two hundred cameras in this network and over the years it has needed some updates.
Commissioned in 2004 for Watershed Media Centre Bristol and exhbited as part of D Shed and exhibited online.
