Yesterday Island

Yesterday Island

The Diomede Islands are located in the middle of the Bering Strait between Alaska and Siberia, and their awkward man-made separation inspired us. The islands are sometimes called Tomorrow Island (Big Diomede, Russian territory) and Yesterday Island (Little Diomede, U.S. territory) because the time difference between them is 20 hours, but the distance only three kilometers.
These two lamps, the big one called Tomorrow Island and the smaller one called Yesterday Island, were part of our collection Marginal Notes #1.
