Use of residency (ideas)
For the past 3 years I have been collecting the ip address of unsecured web cameras. A number of these cameras are pointed at various time keeping devices: clocks, Foucault's pendulums, and other machines that measure change chronologically. For the 1 second residency I propose to download, using software I created, 1 image from as many of those cameras as is possible during my local (or perhaps a server's local) leapsecond. The work will then be a collection of images (if there are any) with the server's logfile containing the successful or attempted http connections.
I am an artist, photographer, programmer, and educator interested in how our perception of time is itself produced by different photographic technologies and the history of those technologies in the management of human and non-human labor.
