Inspired by a found postcard depicting South Beach in Deal during a regatta around 100 years ago, Time Ball 2012 was a summer film event recording the 2012 Deal Regatta. The ambition of the event: to make a film postcard from the same view point of contemporary Deal. Commissioned by Kent County Council and the Kent Cultural Baton, a mobile public artwork travelling and producing an alternative cultural map of Kent, the event celebrates the life of Deal and how the seaside town has changed from past to present. As part of the event, The Kent Cultural Baton was on the seafront distributing specially designed beach towels to commemorate the occasion and encourage people to be part of history by joining others on the beach and featuring in the film.
