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.
Wind
The wind speed is 4mph, so the typography is a little bit distorted.
Time
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.
UV
The UV index is 0.14 so the colours are not very saturated.
Weather
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.

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.
