Constellations of the Earth - Constellation Takahagi

SUZUKI Hiroshi / OHKI Masato

Graphic [Japan]

One in a series of projects drawing new “con- stellations” on land with satellites and handmade radio wave reflectors. The Earth observing sat- ellite DAICHI-2 performs land imaging by beaming signals from space that reflect back to it. Rows of children from Takahagi’s four ele- mentary schools held reflectors to draw the “constellation.” School PA systems and so on then broadcast to them sounds announcing signal contact.
