Eternal Sunset net project, AU, 2006

Eternal Sunset creates the experience of a continuous sunset through the use of live images from existing online webcams around the world. As the sunset moves westward, Eternal Sunset tunes into different webcams, chasing the sunset around the globe. Eternal Sunset is a virtual space where time is passing but where the daily cycle of day and night has come to a freeze at sunset; a space where the sun is always going down but never goes under. Complementing the increased efficiency and productivity associated with the internet, Eternal Sunset celebrates the romantic beauty enabled by that same technology. Enjoy that special moment forever!
