During the past two years I have been researching projects about time and latitude. I explore the idea that our experience in relation to place and time may change depending on our location on the globe. At the equator, the earth rotates 1 mile in approximately 3.46 seconds. In North Norfolk, where these images were taken, the duration is approximately 5.8 seconds for the same distance travelled. In these images I have used mirrors and lights, placed at two fixed points along a particular line of latitude, which flash out of sync. The duration between the flashes represents the time it takes the earth to rotate one mile at that latitude.
