Earth Palettes

Mon, Sep 13, 2021 | 800 Words

I’d been feeling a bit lost, so decided to throw myself into a small, contained project. It took a while to find the perfect idea, but I decided to create Earth Palettes, taking slices of satellite imagery and then pulling a colour palette from it. For me it was an exercise in trying to explore the intersection between nature, art, and technology. Sourcing Data My first thought was finding an open access API feed and downloading 3- or 4-band true colour georectified images and then snipping out small segments.
