18 May–13 July 2013

Antipodes is an online and photographic project which pairs webcam images from places on opposite sides of the globe. As far away from each other as it is possible to be, these distant ‘twins’ have obvious day/night, summer/winter contrasts but also surprising affinities. Using public webcam sources from myriad international locations, the project highlights topographical echoes in the landscape, as well as architectural and cultural similarities. Antipodes will run for a period of a year, launching on spring equinox 2013.
