What is WindowSwap?
WindowSwap is a quarantine project by Sonali Ranjit and Vaishnav Balasubramaniam that lets you use your browser to watch a video of a window and its unique view from different locations across the globe. The site asks for 10-minute HD videos of “your window and frame,” along with the creator’s name and location.

What is a core shadow?
The core shadow is the dark band visible where light and shadow meet. It is the darkest area of the shadow on the sphere (the “form shadow”) because it is least affected by reflected light. Reflected light. Light hitting the surface of an object can be absorbed or reflected.
What is light and shadow?
Light travels in straight lines. When light reaches an object, it can travel through the object if the object is transparent. When an object blocks the light’s path, then darkness appears on the other side. This darkness is called a shadow. The sun is a source of light that when hits an object causes shadows.
How does light affect shadows?
A person or object blocks more light when the sun is low in the sky. More blocked light makes shadows longer. Less light is blocked when the sun is high in the sky. This makes shadows shorter.

Is a shadow two dimensional?
Shadows are just absence of light. And the surface area on which the shadow is cast exists in our 3 dimensional world and is 3 dimensional itself no matter how flat the surface is. As shadows generally appear on surfaces, they have no thickness and are therefore two-dimensional.
Why are there 3 shadows?

Why do we notice the shadow of Aeroplanes flying in the sky?

Why are shadows black?
Shadows most often appear black because the visible light cannot make its way past the obstruction, if there is no light falling on an object then it will be black as there is no light to reflect. As to why black is the absence of light, it just is and we have to accept that.
Why do shadows have no Colour?
A shadow is an area where direct light from a relatively small source is blocked by some opaque object.
