9 August – 2 November 2008
In June 2008 a webcam was installed overlooking Harewood’s classical ‘Capability’ Brown landscape. The webcam is programmed to record images of the landscape over the course of a year and a series of digital prints have been produced with each image made up of pixels collected over 21.33 hours. The work plays on parallels between these constructed pixel landscapes and the construct of this composed picturesque idyll.
The exhibition Work & Play in The Terrace Gallery and Grounds, Harewood House explores Harewood House and its estate in the wider landscape. A few prints from this new Harewood series will be on display alongside other images of Harewood including watercolours, architectural plans, historic maps and photographs from the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries.
A dedicated website for this new webcam piece at Harewood will be going online shortly.
Work & Play is one of a series of exhibitions promoted by the Yorkshire Country House Partnership; a collaboration between the country houses of Yorkshire and the University of York.
