Wendover Timelapse 2008
This is an experiment carried out by Ellen Røed in Bergen, Norway. She was attempting to find the Motherboard performance “Desert Walker” which took place on the Salt Player surrounding Wendover, Utah/Nevada, USA, 2008. Having tried to unsuccessfully locate us via the Wendover Weather Station webcam she used her code for automatically snapping webcam shots at regular intervals, leaving it to run until her computer could store no more. The result is this video time lapse, compacting several days of observation into 45 seconds. It shows the vast salt lake and surrounding area – but it also shows the weather station observing itself. Both Ellen and other visitors manipulate the webcam.
