Looking Out the Window(s)

WindowSwap is a delightful project by Sonali Ranjit and Vaishnav Balasubramaniam that is absolutely the thing we all need, while counting down the days at home.

On opening up the site, you can cycle through a series of high quality videos, taken by other people. Each video provides a view from their window, giving you a chance to travel a bit, without needing to leave your home.

Or should I say, despite your being unable to leave your home.

I’m fascinated by the logistics of this, but ultimately it’s a combination of randomness and curation. And the end result is an example of what I think the Internet does best – providing a bit of serendipity that makes us all feel a little closer to one another, despite the fact that we are all staring into our screens.

I’m reminded very much of The Nicest Place on the Internet and incredibly, terribly sad that that site is no longer around. There’s a joyfulness to this project that I haven’t experienced online in a long, long while – and I didn’t realize how much I miss the Internet from 10 years ago.
