Window Swap is a poetic quarantine art project. Click a button and you get a ten minute prerecorded video of someone else’s window view complete with sound. I took a window tour of the Bavarian countryside, a street in India and a cat watching birds in Qatar. You can also record your own view and submit it. Thanks to the Recomendo newsletter for the tip.

If you’re looking for a movie to watch tonight check out The Story of G.I. Joe, a 1945 movie centering on the war correspondent Ernie Pyle. It was directed by William Wellman and stars Burgess Meredith and Robert Mitchum. This movie has a big heart. You’ll leave it with a greater empathy for what war veterans go through and it’s free in the YouTubes. Thanks to the Jacobin for the tip.

  1. Loved the Recomendo newsletter link. We spent the day making paper airplanes and looking out someone else’s window. Just the diversion we needed.

  2. I have become obssessed with Window Swap. Absolutely mesmerizing – it’s the most amazing peek into other peoples’ reality. Thank you so much for letting us know about this!
