Night and Day - Same time, different place

This is a project of the Tokyo-based website Sensorium, whose key concept is to expand the potential of the Internet as a circuit for sensing the living world.

'Night and Day' is the latest of their projects, released in July this year, and features a ring of WebCam imagery from different longitudinal zones, like tiny postcards, creating a single revolution around the world. At a glance, one can see where the sun casts its shadow and where it lights the sky.

The Cape Town image is taken from the Nasionale Pers building on the Foreshore, and looks up towards Table Mountain. The WebCam is administered by the Naspers website.

Because the site is receiving live playback from many different sources, it takes a while to download. For other equally startling Sensorium projects, see websites.
