Pass your time in lockdown by staring through someone else's window

Creative duo creates website to peek through windows from the South of France to South America—and remember what it was like to travel.

Two Singapore-based creatives got bored of looking out the same window everyday, so they created a 'window swap' to peek at other people's views from around the world.

The website, which works best on a full-screen desktop, launches with a button to click through to 'Open a new window somewhere else in the world'. Users can then cycle between 10-minute video recordings of views in India, Argentina, France, UK, Colombia, Sweden, Singapore, Thailand and more.

'Window Swap' is a side project by husband and wife team Sonali Ranjit and Vaishnav Balasubramaniam, who work at BLKJ and Leo Burnett in Singapore.

"My husband Vaishnav and I created this little project called to help beat our lockdown blues," explained Ranjit. "Because, let's face it, it's going to be a while before we travel again, and wake up to a new view outside our windows. So until then, why not voyeuristically travel by looking out of somebody else's window for a while?"

"We hope this way of 'travelling without moving’ will give the world as much joy as it has given us," she added.

The website is still open for entries: just email [email protected]. Or simply enjoy the view.
