Images of Boston Harbour and a view across Sheffield towards Park Hill and the Cholera Monument are being transmitted live via network cameras, projected at Site Gallery and The Lightwell in Workstation.

Each image is being constructed pixel by pixel from the top left to the bottom right hand corner of the screen (like writing on a page) continuously over a five hour timespan – so that a complete image is depicting five hours of time – embedding quite literally the time difference between the two locations.

Five Hours Later began life in 2002 as part of Collins’s exhibition Transporting Skies – a simultaneous solo show at Site Gallery and Newlyn Gallery, Newcastle. The work is also accessible online at
