A SATELLITE IS AN OBJECT THAT ORBITS A PLANET.

EARTH HAS ABOUT 8.000 SATELLITES INCLUDING THE MOON

AND ABOUT 1.000.000 PIECES OF SPACE DEBRIS.

A SATELLITE IMAGE IS CREATED WITH REMOTE SENSING. A MEASUREMENT OF AN OBJECT WITHOUT BEING IN PHYSICAL CONTACT WITH THAT OBJECT

EVERY SURFACE OR OBJECT

ABSORBS, TRANSMITS, AND REFLECTS LIGHT UNIQUELY DEPENDING ON ITS CHEMICAL COMPOSITION

IN GOOGLE EARTH

THE USER OCCUPIES A FIXED POSITION, WHILE THE GLOBE IS MANIPULATABLE IN RELATION TO THIS POSITION, AND THEREBY INTESIFYING A SENSE OF CONTROL FOR THE USER.

I WOULD LIKE TO RE-EMBODY THE INTERFACE OF GOOGLE EARTH THROUGH A SPECIFIC PRACTICE OF INTIMACY. NOT TO SEE EVERYTHING FROM NOWHERE - BUT IN GETTING INTIMATE WITH THE PHYSICAL SENSOUSNESS OF THE TEXTURE OF THE SURFACE THAT CREATES YEARNING FOR TOUCHING

64°52'50.85''N  15°49'45.23''W

 

 

 

 

IN AN ALMOST TOUCHING CLOSENESS OF THE IMAGE, AS WITH TOUCH ALONE, THE EXPERIENCE DEFIES OVER-VIEW, CONTROL AND MASTE-RY OVER THE OBJECT

RELOCATING THE DISENGAGED VISION BACK INTO THE BODY.

 

72°09'30.73''N  51°13'47.62''W

 

 

 

 

THE EYES ARE INVITED TO TRACE THE FLOW OF WATER, ALMOST BRUSHING THE SURFACE OF THE LIQUID LANDSCAPE.

A SHAPE. LIGHT MILKY COLORED, THE DARK EGGPLANT PURPLE, A SEMI-TRANSPARENT LAYER UPON THE OTHERS AS A

SOFT CLOUDY CARPET.

THIS INDETERMINACY AS THE DISRUPTION OF COMPLETE UNDERSTANDING IS EXACTLY WHAT IS NEEDED FOR A RESPONSIBLE ENGAGEMENT IN THE WORLD.

 

67°06'01.75''N  50°09'42.11''W

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

WE ARE, THROUGH THE SKIN AND TOUCH, ALWAYS ALREADY COMITTED IN AN INTIMIATE RELATIONSHIP WITH THE OTHER AND THE SURROUNDING WORLD.

 

44°20'33.60''N  59°57'51.19''E

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

NO ONE IS DISENGAGED IN A TOUCH - AS ONE IS ALWAYS BOTH TOUCHING AND BEING TOUCHED
