"This collaborative project was initiated by London based Variablemedia.org. They invited Dublin based visual artist Cliona Harmey and musician Dennis McNulty to collaborate together to create a temporary, process based internet project, to be hosted on the variablemedia.org site
. The project ran for 28 days from the 8th June 2002 to the 5th of July 2002 with updates occurring daily.
For the duration of the project, Harmey travelled each day by train & recorded a 10 second video/audio sample of the Irish sea from a fixed location at a bridge on shore at Seapoint on the south Dublin coast. On returning home, she digitally processed the day's recorded images into a video animation file, allocating it a number and description from the Beaufort Scale. The Beaufort Scale measures wind speed by observing the visual effects of wind on water and allocates a number ranging from 0 for calm conditions to 12 for a hurricane.
This measurement for the day's images was applied to the concurrent audio recording in a resampling process devised by McNulty. The Beaufort Scale measurement number, from 0 - 12, was combined with other codes from number generators, defining the parameters for each day's resampled sound. These audio files were then recombined with the video animation and presented on the website as a short Flash film."
