Twenty Thousand Seconds

Dan Hett 2016

Dan Hett extends the live data he works with into static print by creating chronological representations of his performances from datasets generated during his gigs. Twenty Thousand Seconds is an animation of pre-recorded, live-coded visuals slowed down to last the exact duration of the exhibition. The piece, shown alongside Three Hundred and Sixty Seconds, offers unique views of the performance, re-situated within a reconfigured time-scale. Each title references how much data each work represents.
