AM:PM:AD Timelapse – Bringing to life the past, present and future through sound.
As part of the Hack The Barbican competition, AM:PM:AD Timelapse was an innovative installation featuring a 24-hour clock. Historical dates were mapped to real time, exploring London’s past, present and future through sound. Highlighted times of the day became the equivalent year, at 13:48 visitors would hear the mournful cries of the Black Death, at 19:40 would find themselves in the middle of the Blitz and at 20:12 the celebratory cheers of the Olympic Games.
