As I was WhatsApping a couple of mates abroad about Martin McG’s unfortunate situation I noticed the steak I was about to slap onto the pan was shaped as the motherland herself, head and all…
A proposal by ‘computational and speculative designer’ Benedikt Groβ and San Francisco based geographer Joey Lee to ‘run a satellite image based alphabet searching algorithm’ to identify man made structures that look like letters of the alphabet when viewed from above. They say:
..we will traverse the entire planet’s worth of satellite imagery and develop the tools and methods necessary to map these features hiding in plain sight.
Well might you scoff, but the project is already fully funded on Kickstarter.
Last night’s steak that looks like Ireland.
