Twelve O’Clock in London

From Met Eireann

Every day at Twelve O’Clock Greenwich Mean Time, a thousand people from around the world synchronise their efforts in one global act, the launching of meteorological weather balloons.

This non-political agreement between all of the world’s governments forms the theme of Nin Brudermann’s art project “Twelve O’Clock in London”. Nin, sponsored by the New York Foundation for the Arts, has gathered 90 videos of balloon launches from around the world to assemble an illustrative short movie highlighting global scientific co-operation.
