The digital window is a window that digitally displays the “other side”.

The digital window is a window that digitally displays the “other side”. The window appropriates a common hardware application found in popular image capturing devices: a camera mounted to the back of a LCD screen. The effect these devices accidently produce is a digitally mediated transparency, or invisibility. It is this “side effect” that the digital window opportunistically assimilates. In the most basic way, the window turns the wall into a digital interface, a virtual display of the real side. Besides the “other side”, the window can display a variety of other things, like T.V, the web, or simply the ultimate reality T.V. One can only look out from the window, but not in. It operates similarly to the one-way mirror.
