The tide is a wave that connects us
COTIDAL is an ambitious new creative artwork by the UK born artist Tania Kovats, commissioned by the Time and Tide Bell Organisation.
Kovats will soon begin the making of a digital film that is 24 hours and 50 minutes long, the length of a lunar day. The film will track the movement of high tide around the UK featuring the Time and Tide bell locations. The content of the film will be made up of community contributions, films and sound recordings, edited with Kovats’ own filmed material, and woven together to make a cinematic almanac of the tides for our small island.
The first chapter of this film will be located in the South West of England, starting with Appledore, North Devon, where the first Time and Tide Bell was placed. It is being funded by a grant from the Arts Council.
