In collaboration with Planet Labs, the Autodesk Pier 9 Workshop released Art in Space, an exhibition of art laser etched on satellite panels and launched into outer space. Works by Alex Glowaski, Audrey Love, Eric Forman, JoeJoe Martin, Reza Ali, Scott Kildall and Shalom Ormsby are now either in orbit, or awaiting launch from the International Space Station.
Zipping around the earth, these bread loaf-sized satellites stitch together images to create a picture of the entire earth's surface every day. These images can provide invaluable new data on environmental changes, agricultural information and a huge range of other issues.
