The _________ Field


Slideshow
400 Google Earth images

Dots and Lines
Location of each one of the 400 steel poles from Walter de Maria's work The Lightning Field through Google Earth.
As the images are practically orthogonal and each pole measures only 2 inches in diameter (5,08cm) the only way to find them via satellite is by looking for its projected shadow on the ground.

Due to the nature of the images and the zoom applied


The probability of finding them is as low as the probability of lightning in the area.

This project shows satellite images of each of the 400 stainless steel poles that compose Walter de Maria’s Lightning Field by using Google Earth.
The result is a collection of 400 images
