Satellite Lamps are lamps controlled by satellites. This is a project that reveals one of the most significant contemporary technology infrastructures, the Global Positioning System (GPS). Satellite Lamps glow brighter when GPS signals are stronger, and when we use timelapse photography we can see how GPS signals inhabit different everyday spaces.
