WindowSwap project lets you see the world through your computer monitor


What will the landscape look like from an apartment inBrooklyn, Manchester or Istanbul? The global WindowSwap project created by partners Sonali Ranjit and Vaishnava Balasubramanian will help to answer this question. The idea of ​​creating a resource that provides an opportunity to look into another world from the window of someone else's apartment located in different parts of the world came from enthusiasts from Singapore, during a long self-isolation caused by the pandemic.

During three months of forced isolation,Looking out the windows of their apartment every day, the founders of WindowSwap saw the same plot, which ultimately led to depression and became tiresome. However, browsing social networks, they saw a video of the landscape from a window in Barcelona, ​​which predetermined the idea of ​​the project.


Opened on June 5, the site contains a request for transferWindowSwap project 10 minute HD video of window view recording. Using such video fragments, visitors of the resource will be able to immerse themselves in the atmosphere of another city and even hear the sounds typical for a particular country and city. A prerequisite for shooting a video story for WindowSwap is the presence of a window frame on the video from which you are watching. Also, users must provide their name, city name and country in which the window is located.


Not all views are unique and sceniclandscapes. For example, in "Nikita's Window" we can see the outskirts of the Belarusian town of Zhlobin, where multi-storey buildings are located next to the one-storey private sector. And the "Sitara Window" from India shows a view of the terrace, where a cradle is swinging and a dog is walking. The exchange of windows will allow Internet users to see the world from windows located many thousands of kilometers away and brighten up the dreary forced stay in their own apartment caused by the coronavirus epidemic.
