The Satellite is a realtime, experiential, and hyper-realistic portrait of Earth, using live data from hundreds of satellites to allow the public a direct encounter with the planet.
FOLLOW THE PROJECT
Today, with hundreds of earth-observing satellites in orbit, we can access a profound new perception of the world. We're working with advisors at NASA to get realtime satellite data on the current state of Earth's visual properties, including land color, cloud density, ice cover, lighting strikes, and aurorae.
We’re developing our own, custom visualization engine from the ground-up. The engine uses satellite data to generate graphics that look as real as a photograph taken from the space station.
The Satellite will be presented as a public art installation, a custom-designed architectural experience with an ultra high resolution spherical projection screen. From this room, viewers will look out of a window onto a live, viscerally real vision of the Earth from above.
