Description

This work was modeled after arrival and departure displays from airport and train stations. It tracks the sunrise for 90 cities around the world. The chosen cities are evenly spaced along every fourth meridian. The display counts down to the next sunrise. When the sun rises on the first city on the list, the countdown pauses, then the that city disappears and the list is updated. The arrival of a new day is relentless.
