Antipodes is a constantly updating online artwork which pairs webcams images from places on exact opposite sides of the globe. As far away from each other as it is possible to be, these distant 'twins' often have surprising afinities.
Alongside the online artwork exists a series of time-lapse videos created from the continuous flow of images so far captured by the project website. Additionally an installation of live webcam feeds, drawings depicting antipodal geographies and photographic works have also been created from the collected data.
Antipodes launched on the Northward Equinox 2013 and will run for a period of one year: www.antipodes.uk.com
Commissioned by Film and Video Umbrella, in association with Spacex.
