Check out this intriguing piece of work by Art Center student Jiyeon Song: by creating perforations at varying angles different lines of a poem can be seen (as a projection on the ground) as the sun shifts throughout the day. Additionally, the poem changes with the solar calendar. During the summer solstice the poem is about “new life”, and during the winter solstice about “reflection and the passing of time.” Quite a lovely concept in my opinion.
Now, I think it could be amusing/interesting if that could somehow be translated into objects for the home, such as window shades (you know, the kind the rolls down). Imagine waking up to a sunny projection of “wake up!!”/”rise and shine!”/etc. on your face/bed!
And/or if you could request a custom made piece… So that if you had a row of windows in your living room or sun room or whathaveyou a poem would slowly be spelled out in blips across the floor.
