The first bigger collection of webcam paintings during Patrik Entian´s research project Looking for Painting (2007-11) at the art academy in Bergen, and was made for the solo show On a completely different place almost simultaneously (På en helt annen plass omtrent samtidig) at gallery Langegården in Bergen, august/september 2009.
The paintings are based on webcam images from Atka Bay in Antarctica, and are depictions made in Entian´s studio in Bergen, while watching the computer screen of a vast ice landscape and distortions on the camera images, mainly caused by snowstorms, fog or just the lack of light. The camera, wich now has been taken down, was ran by researchers at the german Neumayer Station: http://www.awi.de/en/expedition/stations/neumayer-station-iii.html
Diary Paintings. Several small paintings done diectly after every 10 minute update from the webcam. Olpaint, beeswax, chalk, pigments and drypastels on mdf-boards. 34 x 56 cm each.
