Red Lines was a peer-to-peer network performance that took place from September 10, 2018 to September 10, 2020. The network connected users with servers in geographically specific locations to participate in the sharing and viewing of 82 individual pieces from the Landscape series. Over the course of two years, 120,000 people in 166 countries connected to the Red Lines network, with the average viewing time for each person lasting over one hour.
Although the peer-to-peer aspect of the project has come to a close, you can append ‘/redlines’ to the end of the URL of any individual Landscape piece (e.g. https://s36.787854e174.775050.co.nz/redlines) and enter an archived simulation of the 20-hour looping Red Lines cycle.
Red Lines is commissioned and produced by Artangel. The project is generously supported by Creative Capital.
