Tide Phase, Baxter's Harbour Nova Scotia: May 1-24, 2017
Tide Phase is based on the predicted heights of the tide at Baxter’s Harbour, Nova Scotia, during the period of May 01- 24, 2017. Each 24 hour period is mapped to a musical scale, with notes corresponding to the predicted height of the tide. As happens on the shore each tide is layered on the tide before it, creating a phasic composition that reflects the cyclical nature of the tide itself. The accompanying paper sculpture is a three dimensional graph of the tide, looped to show how each tidal day flows into the next.
