Out My Window


Out My Window is part of the Highrise Project - "Highrise is a multi-year, multi-media, collaborative documentary project about the human experience in global vertical suburbs."

For this multi part project Out My Window is just one little bit, but boy is it a good bit. To show different lives, living conditions and experiences, the Out My Window website shows a montaged building with different windows showing peeks of apartment interiors. Clicking on one brings you, the viewer, right into the middle of their living room. Shot in a 360 degree view, you can pan around the space, see what this person's life is like, and experience their view out their window. Going further, you can learn about each person by clicking on different elements and hearing a narrative.

There is something so real and so genuine about the way these apartments are shown. If it were just some pictures, that would not have much affect on me at all, but because of the 360 view, you really feel like you are there. You're given the chance to step into an apartment in Prague and "meet" the people who live there - what a unique experience.

Major major props to Alison for sharing this with me :)
