TIMELINE shown at G126 Galway January
The video 'Timeline' charts the passage of a ship to shore using two
simultaneous recordings taken by devices placed at distant points in space.
The title Timeline
refers both to a technological timeline whilst also referencing the strong
connection between the maritime and modern conceptions of timekeeping as well
with ideas of transmission. The viewers realtime interaction with the physical
sound is a crucial element of this piece. The sound which was recorded underwater,
begins just before the ship enters the frame and continues to build until the
ship passes the recording point.
Recording method: sound and video recorded
simultaneously, sound at far pier, video recorded
across bay from pier
