The whole world talks about energy. Electricity is an relevant topic in our society. So isn't it a paradox that the only thing that visualizes our usage, is downstairs in the basement? For the most people the plug is the interface to electricity. So why don't showing our usage right there on this spot?

View is a plug and light switch system which creates a awareness for the usage of our electronic equipment. The used kilowatt hours were visualized by a LED projection right beside the plug. As soon as the electricity flows, the number appears on the wall. Is the circuit interrupted, it fades slowly out.
