Antipodes by Layla Curtis 2013
Antipodes (www.antipodes.uk.com) is an art project by Layla Curtis. The web-based artwork will be running for (at least) a year collecting images from pairs of webcams that Layla has found that are on the opposite sides of the world to each other. These 'antipodal webcams' provide a fascinating insight to the daily rhythms of the planet as it spins on its axis - and as the collection of images grows they will also begin to reveal the seasonal cycles. Cuttlefish built the technology for the project - grabbing images from the webcams at regular intervals, and presenting it to users via the www.antipodes.uk.com website. I built most of the front-end technology and my colleague Jon Ferguson built the back-end.
