Dell Quay is a new site specific work commissioned for
Sussex Landscape: Chalk, Wood and Water at Pallant House Gallery, Chichester
12 November 2022 – 23rd April 2023
A network camera has been installed on the roof of Dell Quay Sailing Club in the Chichester Harbour Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, a tidal estuarine environment.
Dell Quay is part of an ongoing series of works transmitting and composing images over time from remote locations. Each complete image is constructed pixel by pixel, line by line from the top left of the image to the bottom right over a six and a half hour period, approximately the time it takes for the tide to go in or out.
For the duration of the Sussex Landscape exhibition, Dell Quay will be displayed in the gallery on a screen updating live, in real time, bringing the local landscape of Sussex into the exhibition.
The images are saved at 15 minute intervals, and will accumulate to form an archive over the course of a year. The live image can be seen here (above, please refresh for updates) with selected images posted regularly on Instagram at @susanalexislandscapes
Dell Quay has been made possible thanks to:
Dell Quay Sailing Club for generously hosting the camera on their roof and for giving their support, enthusiasm and time, in particular Vice Commodore Mark Moranne and Hon Treasurer and Webmaster Chris Rigg-Milner.
Matt Jarvis, as always for his creative programming and inventive solutions
