Good Questions: Rotating Quotations on My Wall?

Hello AT,

As a writer, I have long been a collector of quotations that inspire me. I have a blank wall that I'd like to use to display a collection of my favorite quotes. I face this wall when I sit at my desk. I think being able to see these quotes while I write would be a great source of creativity for me...

Any suggestions on how I can use technology to project a rotating collection of these sayings on the wall? Conveniently, there is a small window directly across from this wall space. It's about ten feet away and has a windowsill that measures just shy of six inches deep. There's even an electrical outlet nearby. Oh, and did I mention I would like to do this as economically as possible?

Thanks, Denise

Dear Denise,

This is definitely a question for our new Home Tech editors that are warming up in the background. We are going to send them each an email to see what they have to say.

From our perspective, the easiest and cheapest way to do this would be to use a slide projector and your quoation turned from a jpeg into a slide. You could easily create your quotations on your computer and turn them into images using a screenshot or photoshop.

The other way to do it is to hook your compute up to a digital projector and show it as a slideshow. This is more involved and the projector will run you @ $800.

It might be more fun to simply construct a large paper tablet that hangs on your wall and has a different quotation for each day - similar in scale to the Pentagram calendars we sell. If lettering was a challenge for you, you could use adhesive letters from a place like Wonderful Graffitti.

Anyone else??
