Re: <nettime> Landscape Painting of the Information Age



Also on the topic of the visual meshing of landscape and informatic 
processes, another project worth viewing is Susan Collins' project, 
'Fenlandia':

"From May 2004, webcams are being installed in various sites - rural and 
technological - in Silicon Fen (East Anglia), Silicon Valley (M4 Corridor) 
and Silicon Glen (Scotland) for 12 months each.

  The webcams are harvesting images pixel by pixel, recording at different 
rates over the course of the year. Each image is 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 two hour intervals. A selection of these images are displayed and 
updated regularly in the archive section of this website."
