Exhibit Design Inspiration: A History of the Sky

Ken Murphy is developing a project called "A History of the Sky" that uses time-lapse video (captured from a camera on the roof of the Exploratorium) to document the changes in the sky to help viewers appreciate the rhythms of weather, the lengthening and shortening of days, and other atmospheric events.

As you can see in the still image below or the YouTube video above, it is a wonderful way to integrate nature, art and technology.

You can find out more about the project (including technical details) and lots more images by visiting the AHotS website.  Enjoy!
