The video ‘Timeline’ charts the passage of a ship to shore using two simultaneous recordings taken by devices placed at distant points in space. The title Timeline refers both to a technological timeline whilst also referencing the strong connection between the maritime and modern conceptions of timekeeping as well as concerns with ideas of transmission. The viewers realtime interaction with the physical sound is a crucial element of this piece. The sound which was recorded underwater, begins just before the ship enters the frame and continues to build until the ship passes the recording point.
