HMKV Satellite Voyeurism – workshop documentation online

The documentation of the Satellite Voyeurism Workshop, which took place last Summer at HMKV in Dortmund, is online as a PDF download (hi-res and low-res.)

The workshop addressed questions of the production and consumption of satellite imagery. Discussing the success of Google Earth and similar software, artists aimed to create their ‘own’ satellite images. The participants were provided with the hands-on experience to receive satellite images from the NOAA satellites, which is documented in this publication.

The workshop was great and extremely insightful. The least one could say about my contribution to the document is that is extremely minimal but the rest is well worth your sunny afternoon my friends.
