Lichtblick - Calendar of light

Sun comes and goes everyday. But isn't it interesting to get information about, how long it shined at any other location on earth? The length of the solar-day is related to the time of the year and the selected location. When munich's solar-day persits in 9 hours, the same time a solar-day in Tromsø, norway persists in only 2 hours. The get a feeling of these varieties, Lichtblick visualizes the duration of a solar-day at every point on earth at any time.

Lichtblick is an installation, which has both a visal interface and a created light feedback. One calendar location exists inside of a radial system. The user can see the rings of years, months and days. The thicker the strokes are, the more hours of sun are contained. Hovering lets the solar-lamp lighten in different strengths. To compare different locations and years the user can navigate through a horizontal layer.
