Sometimes it’s nice to just sit down in a park bench and contemplate your existence. Solitude. Tranquility. Or, you can have pictures of your sit-down meditation broadcast across the internet via Twitter. That will certainly make me feel relaxed.
The @tweetingseat project’s – child of design student Chris McNicoll – snaps two photos whenever someone parks their behind on the bench. One view captures the surroundings, while another tree-mounted cam captures you. We’re all then free to get some park voyeurism on and watch sad old people throwing birdseed, young couples making out, and college students conspicuously reading Chaucer. [Chris McNicoll via Core77]
