How does the user experience it?

The user selects for how long they want to display each artwork. Then, each clip is played on their TV in a loop for the set amount of time.

WindowSight’s Video Art Classifications

All video art must fit one of the following classifications.

  • Fill 1Created with Sketch.

    Loop

    Full-circle action that visually evolves from A to B, and finishes by going back to the beginning.

  • Combined ShapeCreated with Sketch.

    Boomerang

    Video that plays forward, and then backward to its beginning.

  • Combined ShapeCreated with Sketch.

    Cinemagraph

    Still photography where one or more of its elements are moving continuously.

  • Combined ShapeCreated with Sketch.

    Videostack

    Combination of short duration shots connected by theme, space and time.

A Videostack is a new classification created by WindowSight to allow artists who don’t work with loopable clips to publish their art on the platform.

When a Videostack is played continuously by the app it creates a loop effect in the spectator. This way, artists who make video art but not in a loop form, can publish on WindowSight too.
