Vacant Ludlow Street Lot is Live-Streaming NASA Satellite Footage of Earth
That massive rig installed in the dormant lot at 159 Ludlow Street is activated. Its purpose is literally out of this world.
The temporary structure hoists an orb-shaped screen that will project imagery from space. Indeed, the installation streams real-time video from a satellite orbiting Earth. Artist Sebastian ErraZuriz is also involved in the project, as previously reported. This slideshow of sorts will be displayed 24/7, albeit without an audio component.
It begins next Wednesday (March 13) and runs through April 14.
And with it, the status quo in this Ludlow lot has been disturbed.
Neighbors now have a front-row seat to a month’s worth of video programming in the vacant lot at 159 Ludlow Street. On infinite loop.
Does this set a precedent for scope of potential future art projects here?

New public art project will stream live video of Earth from a NASA satellite. Attempt to provide a platform to see ourselves from a macro perspective, a tiny instant within a much larger space and time continuum. I’m really excited. So thankful to everyone working hard with us to finish on time. Next Wednesday. LES.
