About the edition

Jon Thomson and Alison Craighead have been working together as a collaborative duo since 1993. Much of their work explores how technology alters the way we perceive and understand the world. This print originates from a new work titled Horizon that Thomson & Craighead developed for DCA, and which was exhibited as a largescale wall projection in the 2009 exhibition Timecode.

During the course of the exhibition each line of images showed real time updates relayed by webcams selected from individual time zones around the world. In print format this work represents a simultaneous visual capture of one moment in time across the world’s time zones.
