My fascination for live cameras on the Internet - webcams - began over a decade ago. I’ve used webcams in online performances, photographic series and presently to create monumental composite images.

Many miles away from the actual location yet connected via the Internet, I direct robotic webcams to scan the picture plane bit by bit. Over several months or years, I capture thousands of still images, stitching them together into a panorama of great complexity and detail. Showing natural and man-made elements alike, the composite inadvertently compiles a map of the location’s ecosystem and socio-economic demographics. The result reveals the passage of time and develops its own narrative logic, offering a fictive yet hyper-realisticportrait of a place.

The final product is a seamless digital Lightjet print. Idiosyncracies inherent in the specific camera –viewing restrictions or even discontinuation of service –can result in eccentric shapes of the image. In the exhibition environment I often incorporate acomputer terminal allowing the audience to access the live camera interface and to interact with the site in real time.
