Have you heard of WindowSwap? Neither had I, until earlier this year. It’s like a screensaver of 10-minute recordings from around the world. It’s almost a rabbit hole where you just end of staring at the screen for long periods of time….in a good way. The instructions of WindowSwap are easy… use your phone or camera, preferably with a tripod, to record a 10 minute long recording of your window view. It gives you a glimpse of what other people see outside their homes around the world.
Well, I did just that…but not only from my home window, but also from offices and hotels where I’ve spent time. Below you’ll find some of my recordings so far:
