Tobias Klein: Crowdsourcing A Virtual Sunset

Studio Tobias Klein is an experimental design studio that specializes in architectural systems and interactive installations. For Virtual Sunset, they asked users to submit images of the sunset from around the globe by uploading them to a website where they were geolocated.

These snapshots were then projected in real-time onto PVC tubing to create a three-dimensional ephemeral artwork that captures the transient but sublime nature of a sunset--turning what can often be a private, secluded moment into a collective, tangible experience.
