Abstract or Description
The Video Window is a video screen hanging next to a window on my bed-room wall, showing the image from a camera mounted to show the skyline from outside that same window. This paper describes the appeal of living with such a system, and the intermingled aesthetic, utilitarian and practical issues involved in its creation and the experience it offers.
