Dead pixel on Google Earth

    Art comes in many forms. The Dutch artist Helmut Smits , perhaps outraged by the broken pixel on his monitor, decided to make a broken pixel in the real world.

    Using Google Earth as a guide, Smiths calculated that one pixel, when viewed from a height of 1 km above the earth’s surface, would occupy 6,724 square centimeters. So he burned a piece of land 82 x 82 cm near his Rotterdam studio.

    Despite the work, and the fact that it is designed for viewing in Google Earth, you can’t see the result now, because it will take several years for the satellite to update the information. I hope Smiths does not abandon his idea and a piece of land does not grow grass again.
