Bored of the view from your window? Fancy swapping it for grazing cows in the rural fields of the Philippines or the dazzling lights of the Manhattan skyline? Well now you can.
Travel may still be restricted, but a new video project will virtually transport you around the world, allowing you to watch the view from someone else’s window. The relaxing footage is just the thing you need after months of lockdown.
The project, titled Window Swap, was created by Sonali Ranjit and her husband Vaishnav Balasubramaniam, two advertising creatives based in Singapore. Between them, they’ve previously lived and worked in India, Shanghai, Singapore, San Francisco and Stockholm, so spent lockdown wondering how their friends abroad were getting on. So created the idea of being able to share video content to update one another in different time zones.
Fast forward to now and they have thousands and thousands of windows shared from over 25 countries around the world. Head to the website and see what window you get dealt and don’t forget to support by uploading your own window. Check it out here – window-swap.com
