sandymount collage

These studies of Sandymount Strand in Dublin are the work of architect and photographer Alice Clancy. The space of the strand is captured over 6 hours. Alice set up a vertical grid over a 180 degree angle of view and with each vertical segment capturing 15 degrees of view. Each segment is then divided in vertically in 4. A full set of images was taken every 10-15 minutes, using the fixed camera settings: f4.0, 1/60 sec, ISO 100. The final panorama was then constructed from the base images. Each vertical slice represents about 30 minutes of time, while horizontally, the images represent 6 hours passing. There are 60 images in the piece each taken with a shutter speed of 1/60th of a second, so the overall time encapsulated in the image is 1 second.
Alice's blog, Space Framed, which she created for a UCD seminar on photography is a great source of reference.
