Pico Mirador


2003, Web site responding to time of day (UK time)

Web-cams, with their clunky low-resolution and glacial ‘refresh-rate’ timing, might seem scant fodder for artists, but Rachel Reupke here revels in the beauty and narrative of the webcams provided by the fictional Pico Mirador National Park. Rachel Reupke’s work has dealt with the romantic conventions of film landscapes, including Hitchcock’s use of scenery as a story-telling device, loaded with psychological metaphor.
