In May 2004, Susan Collins installed a network camera on the roof of the Anchor Inn, Sutton Gault in the area of Cambridgeshire known as Silicon Fen. This camera harvested images of a rural landscape pixel by pixel over the course of one year and was programmed to transmit one pixel per second live via the internet.

 

This image was collected, one pixel at a time, from top to bottom and left to right in horizontal bands continuously, marking visible fluctuations in light and movement throughout the day (and night). The whole image was built up of individual pixels collected over 21.33 hours, just under a day. Stray pixels appear in the image where a bird, person, car or other unidentifiable object may have passed in front of the webcam as the pixel was captured.

 

The work explores the relationship between landscape, time and technological innovation in East Anglia’s ‘Silicon Fen’, where technology is literally embedded in the flat horizons of a reclaimed landscape of canals, sluices, dykes and ditches.

 

Fenlandia is a companion piece to Glenlandia.
