NSKYC Documents the Color of NYC Skyline

NSKYC Screenshot

A camera positioned at an unknown location in New York City documents the change in color of the skyline every five minutes. The average color is computed, and is represented on a grid of hex colors on a website. Presumably this installation art of sorts, accessed through the humble web browser, has been running since June 28, 2011 at 4:00 PM and will be continuous for the foreseeable future.

The code for the site is a minimal combination of HTML5, JavaScript with jQuery, and a PHP backend for getting the most recent photograph and doing the computations necessary for averaging the color and converting it to hex format.
