“Satellite Surveillance” at the Temporary Contemporary (MOCA)

This installation utilizes the views through skylites in the roof of the Temporary Contemporary (MOCA) in Los Angeles (1995).  A French satellite that orbits the earth views this area of the planet once every 26 days.  I have delineated the satellites view of the walls and floor of this exhibition hall under one of the many skylites viewed concurrently each time this satellite flies by.  This satellite has the capacity to resolve anything six inches or larger.  Current satellites have much better resolution!
