Phil Coy’s Eleven Seconds of Paradise (2020) will be showing in the window of Simon Webster Hair on Gardner Street between 5 and 7pm.

In 2000, before Google was Google as we now know it, the artist made an Internet search for ‘paradise’ and downloaded 275 thumbnail images. They then put the images together as single frames with a frame rate of 25 frames per second so they became equivalent to ‘eleven seconds of paradise’. The 2020 version was made out of a curiosity to see how paradise had changed.

Thank you to Simon Webster Hair for partnering with us for Third Thursdays.
