Windows to the World


The team at Anotherview has created a series of evocative artworks with films of window views from locations around the world.

Shot in high-definition from real windows over periods of up to 24 hours, the films are played on continuous loops on screens encased in actual window frames, producing uncannily realistic, albeit nomadic, window views.  The installations create a magical experience, transporting viewers to unexpected locations, forcing them to slow down and appreciate the minutiae of daily life captured by the films.  Watch enraptured as skyscrapers in New York light up as day turns slowly into night, or waves gently lapping the shores of Boulders Beach in South Africa, or a farmer languidly criss-crossing the rolling fields of northern Italy on his lawn-mower.

These beguiling artworks serve a conservationist purpose too, as the artists aim to capture fast vanishing scenes for posterity.  Their latest installation, shown at Galleria Rossana Orlandi in Milan during the design week, features the view of a bustling canal from a palazzo in Venice; a picture postcard perfect vista which may well exist only in video form in the not so distant future.
