Synopsis

FRAMERATE: Pulse of the Earth bears witness to landscapes in flux. The work reveals alterations caused by human-centred industry and the immense forces of nature; destruction, extraction, habitation, construction, harvests, growth, and erosion. Three-dimensional stories unfold across an array of screens. Hypnotic imagery surrounds you. Audio shifts through the space. Spring breaks, summer sun shines dappled through the leaves as they turn amber and fall a second later. In a quaint English garden a pumpkin grows. A thousand tonnes of steel is crushed. Sand ebbs and flows while a cliff retreats. 268 cows are milked. 519 pints are drunk. Created from thousands of daily 3D time-lapse scans of British landscapes, the work observes change on a scale impossible to see with the lens of traditional cameras. This is not just an artwork. The data collected and presented by FRAMERATE is ground-breaking scientific research, containing empirical, measurable facts. FRAMERATE: Pulse of the Earth invites you to observe in another way. To think and feel in another time scale: geological time, seasonal time, tidal time. To contemplate change, and the pace of change. This is a space where your perspective might shift.

Directors’ Statement

FRAMERATE: Pulse of the Earth manifests as art, meditation and science in concert. Our team 3D time-lapse recorded urban, rural and industrial sites changing over time. The resulting hypnotic imagery observes environmental change on a spatial and temporal scale. With these ground- breaking visuals, we have created a unique installation guided by principles of architecture, theatre, music and mindfulness. This work invites people to consider their relationships to time, the environment, their community, and to change—offering a new way of looking at the world and relating to the planet.
