Holiday card made of microwaves will brighten your nights

Craft & Design Home

This holiday video card installation by AKQA uses 49 microwave ovens stacked in a dark space and timed to sequentially turn off so that the only thing left is their blinking, unset clocks which resembles twinkling stars in the night sky (you need to watch the video until the end to see the full effect). The timed ovens going dark reminds me of a city at night fall where people are turning off lights in their apartments while getting ready for bed… Happy holidays to all the Makers out there!
