This futuristic portal connects two Europeans countries in real-time. Installed in a bid to help people stay connected. Portal was installed in Vilnius on May 26, with a second Portal installed in Lublin, Poland, allowing passers-by in each city to communicate. Both Portals have the appearance of a virtual circular ‘door’, made up of a large screen and cameras through which live images are transmitted between the cities. The project has been five years in the making and is intended to create a ‘visual bridge and new wave community accelerator’ bringing people from different cultures together with an emphasis on unity. President of the Benediktas Gylys Foundation, Benediktas Gylys, initiated the idea and is set to open Portals in Reykjavik and London in the future.
