20 Sites n Years revisited


South London Dreaming by Tom Phillips (2007).

Tom Phillips’ ongoing art project, 20 Sites n Years, is now presented on his site with a facility which allows the viewing of all the photos for each location. (And if you haven’t come across the project before, the specifications are here.) Nice being able to step through the photos year by year especially if you don’t have a copy of Phillips’ Works and Texts. In an earlier description of the project he speculates on its possible manifestations in the future since the plan is that it be continued indefinitely after its creator’s death. This small web manifestation is one development that wouldn’t have been anticipated in 1973. Other possibilities, such as the likelihood of South London being eventually submerged by a rising Thames, were fanciful in the Seventies but no longer seem so remote.
