A massive disc recently installed in Lithuania’s capital city Vilnius shows a live view of what appears to be another normal street. But it’s actually showing the view from a twin disc located in Lublin, Poland, nearly 400 miles away. Folks in Lublin passing by the disc can see the view in Vilnius in return. These discs form Portals, a non-profit project from Vilnius, and a team of creatives that seek to promote unity and a welcoming attitude to other people and cultures. Above is a shot of the disc in Vilnius, while below is a shot of the partner disc in Lublin.
Here’s a longer look at Portals courtesy of Ruptly:
Now that’s a sweet big brother. The team behind Portals is working to install discs that will connect the citizens of Vilnius to two more countries: one in London, England, and one more in Reykjavik in Iceland.
