  • Jill Baroff: ›New York Harbor March 31 - April 30 2005‹, 2005/2006

  • The New York artist Jill Baroff, in her ›Tide Drawings‹ which she has been making since 2002, bases her work on a natural process; she translates ebb and flow into an artistic form. Starting point are tide tables of different bodies of water, document in detail water levels with date and time.
    In the case of her series ›New York Harbor March 31 – April 30 2005‹, based on the tides of the period in the title, data on ebbing water served as the basis for a series of vertical lines and data on rising water for the horizontal lines. Distances between the extremely thin lines depend on how much the level changed compared to the previous measurement. As the difference between individual measurements was smaller the closer the water level got to the changing tide, the red lines move ever closer together in the drawing until the white of the paper is completely covered. As the tide turns later from day to day, this compression of lines moves in the course of the series.
