A solo show presenting a new body of work by Susan Collins
4 April – 14 June 2009, De La Warr Pavilion, Bexhill-on-Sea
SEASCAPE consists of a series of gradually unfolding digital seascapes created using imagery captured by webcams installed at five key coastal vantage points between Margate and Portsmouth. Sited at each location for up to a year before the start of the show, the webcams recorded the endless fluctuations in the light that are a characteristic feature of the English coastline and whose ever-changing nature has attracted painters for generations.
The exhibition included a series of real-time projections – each showing an image constructed from digital material drawn from the five webcams. Continually collecting this data – from top to bottom and left to right in horizontal bands – these images were constantly generated and renewed pixel by pixel.
A series of digital prints from this sea of material were also presented as part of the exhibition, whilst a Seascape Website and book featured the vast digital archive of webcam imagery amassed over the period of 12 months.
