'Portal' connects people in different cities

This portal can connect you to another city

In this case people in Vilnius, Lithuania

can wave to the residents of Lublin in Poland

The sculpture, named 'Portals,' uses live video which is mute

Passers-by to communicate via gestures and body language


"Basically we are erasing distances and Portal is an 11-tonne bridge to different cultures, to different countries, and we plan to make dozens of these around the globe. So that you could travel, you could stand close to the portal and you could travel to different cultures in like three minutes. One minute you are in Bangkok, another minute you are in Lublin, the third minute you are somewhere in Chicago, and you're seeing that everyone is basically the same - waving at you, that they are not your strangers that they are here to support you."
