About this website
The current design of this website is determined by an algorithm. It uses live weather and astronomy data from our location in Oxford, UK to create a unique & unrepeatable composition.
The wind speed is 4mph, so the typography is a little bit distorted.
It's 10:16 – this determines the primary colour and the position of the gradient, and because it's daylight the colour is light rather than dark. Today's date, the 3rd of December 2021 causes the contrast to shift and the gradient is rotated too. The gradient is also affected by sunrise at 07:56 and sunset at 15:52.
The UV index is 0.14 so the colours are not very saturated.
The condition is Fog so the composition is very blurry, the gradient is much darker and less saturated. There's a 90% cloud layer to match the sky.
This website was designed by Jake Dow-Smith Studio.
