Parallel City

Interactive lighting product

 
 

 This is an ongoing project that it can get the sunrise and sunset time of one country from web, calculate the time lapse of that, and give people a 24 hours realtime paper-city in this light box with transforming lighting effects. The small yellow window light is changing according to a real room, your own or some one you love in a specific country. 

This idea came from that we always can see the window light of someone in the far away building and feel their life from just that little changing, but we never see ourselves'. And also I have the wish that I can feel closer to my parent even I'm getting up in the morning in US when they are going to sleep in the evening in China. So If I can have a image that I can see their world and the light from their window, it may feel emotionally closer to them.
