Layering human intuition onto the architecture of science and technology
Web/Cablevision: The Sun-washed Earth Animated Logo/Button
by Matt Weilert
Earthwash is the name of this jewel: tiny but intricate and dazzling. Our parent, Systems Thinking Institute LLC had a public access Technology Education monthly TV show in the Manchester, NH metro area, as a way to give back to the community more broadly than our consulting work allowed. The three or four seconds of video that inspired this button animation were actually screen captured from a software program that displays the sun's coverage of the earth at any given time. Depending on your connection, the rate displayed in this image is close to what an observer from space would see if an entire week were compressed into one second.
In one sense, Earthwash gives you a window into time travel…
