Eternal Sunset

Eternal Sunset creates the experience of a continuous sunset through the use of live images from existing online webcams around the world. As the sunset moves westward, Eternal Sunset tunes into different webcams, chasing the sunset around the globe. Eternal Sunset is a virtual space where time is passing but where the daily cycle of day and night has come to a freeze at sunset; a space where the sun is always going down but never goes under.

Adriaan Stellingwerff has been working in the field of new media and screen-based arts for over eight years. Combining his technical background as an engineer with his interest in the arts, he started working as a new media arts curator and producer in the Netherlands in 1998. Between 1998 and 2003 Adriaan curated and organized three major international exhibitions of interactive installation art.
