Yu-Chen Chen / Clip of the Curtain

Yu-Chen Chen
Yu-Chen Chen

Usually, most of people are not sure which side of the rope we should pull to open the curtain. I think of a simple way to solve this problem. Clip two kinds of patterns on two sides of the rope. One pattern is the sun, and the other is the moon. In the morning, opening the curtain to let the sunshine flow into the room, we pull the “moon side.” It’s easy to remember because the sun rises while the moon set in the morning. On the contrary, we pull the “sun side” to let the sun set at night. With the easy and interesting concept of sunrise and sunset, we can solve the problem of pulling which side of the rope.
