Time and tide wait for no man, nor machine c / The origins of the proverb 'Time and tide wait for no man' are uncertain, although it is clear that the phrase is ancient and that it predates modern English. A version in modern English - "the tide abides for, tarrieth for no man, stays no man, tide nor time tarrieth no man" evolved into the present day version capturing the notion that no one is so powerful that they can stop the march of time.
Time and tide wait for no man, nor machine is an investigative illustration of the limitations of technologies ability to capture, recall and render 'apparent reality' by use of Google Map screen grab 'glitches' found in the tides of the South Wales coast.
