In September 2005, Susan Collins installed a network camera overlooking Loch Faskally, Pitlochry, Scotland. This camera harvested images of a rural landscape pixel by pixel over the course of two years 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.

 

Although this view appears to be that of a quintessentially natural Scottish landscape, Loch Faskally is in fact man made. It was created behind the hydro dam at Pitlochry which was built in 1947-50 as part of the North of Scotland Hydro-Electric Board's Tummel/Garry Power Scheme.

 

Glenlandia is a companion piece to Fenlandia.
