The main idea at "Lichtblick" was to visualize the duration of sunshine within an interactive installation. Light is used to create a real feedback.
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.
