As a surfer, I can not bear the thought of not knowing the local forecast, let alone global. So many surfers and photographers rely on these forecasts to schedule in their time chasing waves.
Nothing’s more satisfying than finding out that Aussie Pipe is going to be pumping, whilst the Gong remains at a sad 1ft.
Within my remediation, I aimed to simply display the benefits of technology including underwater cables. I further attempted to explore the ups and downs within the creation of a stable communication system.
In relation to the first Transatlantic cable, the invention has somewhat shaped media technology and enhanced global communication.
“One of the first messages that came through the transatlantic telegraph cable when it opened in the mid 19th century was The Queen has a cold”.
Although the first cable was discontinued due to a delay in messages, it was essentially a “toe dip” to test the ‘water’ of communication technology.
So thank you to those inventors. For scheduling my mornings, days off and surf trips!
