|Living off borrowed time, the clock ticks faster...|
We heard how dangerous it could get outdoors with all the traffic-crossings, pollen, UV rays and so on, so we decided to stay in and paint our walls with a live stream of the outside world...
For the cowardly like-minded, here is how you can experience your perilous surroundings from the dankness of your comfortable room.
|Craft or die trying.|
You will need a piece of cardboard or twenty, some tape, a window and scissors.
First, lock your doors, kill the lights and block the windows with cardboard as though you are expecting visitors. Any gaps in your shroud that allows light to peek inside (as though a slow trickle from a hole in the corner of a catfood bag)? Tape it up - The darker the room is, the stronger the effect will be.
Next, using your sharp implements of cutting (I.E. scissors, knife or claws in our case), gouge a hole somewhere in the dead off-center of your cardboard curtain.
CLAWnclusion: Now, sunlight entering through this aperture will project an inverted image of the treacherous outdoor realm onto your dark walls, floors and ceiling.
In the 15 - 20 minute it takes for our eyes to adjust to the darkness, they become 1 million times more sensitive and we can observe the progression of outside life with nearly as much clarity as a television. Trees blowing the wind, pedestrians crossing roads, cars navigating traffic lights and clouds drifting quietly by.
