Go Outside

http://dinakelberman.com/gooutside

Website, Series of looping found images set to alter gradually to match the color temperature of the current daylight in the viewer's location.

Go Outside was originally devised as a commission for the Idle Screenings screensaver exhibition series in 2014. At that time the piece used Twitter to feed a series of images that would match the sunlight for a particular day and location (June 1, Baltimore, MD).
