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 5mph, so the typography is a little bit distorted.
It's 14:31 – 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 24th of May 2024 causes the contrast to shift and the gradient is rotated too. The gradient is also affected by sunrise at 05:03 and sunset at 20:59.
The UV index is 2.74 so the colours are not very saturated.
The condition is Clouds so the composition is partly obscured by light coloured gradients. There's a 100% cloud layer to match the sky.
This website was designed by Jake Dow-Smith Studio.

Our projects

Fig aims to open up creative spaces where art, people, and plants meet, and engage imaginatively with the key ecological issues of our time.

Initial projects will work between a studio, equipped with printmaking equipment, in Makespace Central, a collaborative co-working social enterprise project in the heart of Oxford, and two 100 m2plots on the unique Elder Stubbs Allotment site in East Oxford, which includes a wildflower meadow, woodland, orchard, community gardens, and 100+ individual plots.
