Whitney Museum Sunrise Sunset
For those of us stuck in front of machines all day, or with an obscured outdoor view at home, it can be hard to differentiate between night and day when direct sunlight doesn’t often visit. Fortunately, we can now point our browsers to the Whitney Museum website, where a visible change takes place twice daily as the planet spins outside.
Each day, the background on the site shifts from black to white at dawn, and back from white to black at dusk. Glowing orbs appear on every page when the light shifts, and the number and trajectory of these figures are determined by how many visitors have been to the website since the last transition.
It’s pretty cool to witness the real world changing the insular environment of the internet. Visit whitney.org tomorrow morning at 7:02 to see it for yourself!
