|Above: Ten views of Mt. Fuji, from Keio University Mt. Fuji webcam. This webcam is no longer in operation. I also seem to remember some kind of tower having been put up right in the center of its field of view, soon before it ceased operation.|
|See also: Interesting Keio University "performance art" project: Light on the Net (dead link). This was an interactive installation of a grid of light bulbs in a real building, with a web cam pointing to the lights, and the web visitor could change the display by clicking on the lights [i.e., the picture of the lights in the user's web browser]. One could only click one light at a time, thus requiring many click-refresh cycles to make a major change in the on-off pattern of the lights. This time lag could lead to interactions among two or more web visitors concurrently turning lights on and off -- possibly thinking to help or to thwart each other. Below are two pictures from this project, one from daytime and one from nighttime (the project was active 24/7). Learn more about "Light on the Net"|
|When they were available (1997-?), frequently -- sometimes several times in one day --, I looked at Mt. Fuji thru the Keio University camera, and "played" "Light on the Net".|
