I wonder if everyone that looks at this image gets uneasy?

08:12PM Tue, 18 June 2013 GMT by Andrew

I wonder if this was captured as a true image or if the radar image was imposed for effect.

08:12PM Tue, 18 June 2013 GMT by Theresa

I wonder where the image was displayed, an art exhibit?

08:13PM Tue, 18 June 2013 GMT by Erica

I wonder why the artist made this work? Where are the from and what effect does development have on them or the future of their community?

08:13PM Tue, 18 June 2013 GMT by Beth

@Theresa, I wondered the same thing and then thought I couldnt imagine how it could be real.

08:13PM Tue, 18 June 2013 GMT by Andrew

I wonder if its a 3D model

08:13PM Tue, 18 June 2013 GMT by Jade

@Andrew, it does make me uneasy and I am not sure why…Big Brother?

08:14PM Tue, 18 June 2013 GMT by Theresa

@Jade, it has a nice sense of space in the work.

08:14PM Tue, 18 June 2013 GMT by Beth

@Jade, that would be interesting

08:14PM Tue, 18 June 2013 GMT by Andrew

I wonder what emotion the satellite intended to create.

08:14PM Tue, 18 June 2013 GMT by Erica

@Andrew, @Theresa, I can see the Big Brother connection.

08:14PM Tue, 18 June 2013 GMT by Beth

@theresa, especially with all thats been going on in the news over the last few weeks.

08:14PM Tue, 18 June 2013 GMT by Andrew

I wonder if the was part of an exhibit or in a gallery?

08:14PM Tue, 18 June 2013 GMT by Susan S

@Beth – i agree

08:14PM Tue, 18 June 2013 GMT by Jade

I wonder what it’s worth?!

08:14PM Tue, 18 June 2013 GMT by Andrew

The bed people are having a hard time connecting

08:15PM Tue, 18 June 2013 GMT by carole

@Andrew, isn’t it worth 1000 words?

08:15PM Tue, 18 June 2013 GMT by Beth

I wonder if it’s considered by the “establishment” as controversial?

08:16PM Tue, 18 June 2013 GMT by Andrew

@Beth, good one!

08:16PM Tue, 18 June 2013 GMT by Theresa

@carole – snooping elsewhere? lol

08:16PM Tue, 18 June 2013 GMT by Andrew

Actually that is a cool thought that maybe it is a painting even if it is presented to us digitally…

08:16PM Tue, 18 June 2013 GMT by Susie

@beth, lol

08:16PM Tue, 18 June 2013 GMT by Andrew

@Theresa, thanks.

08:16PM Tue, 18 June 2013 GMT by Beth

I agree with Carole

08:16PM Tue, 18 June 2013 GMT by Susan S

@susie, yeah, and what’s lost when we digitize something

08:16PM Tue, 18 June 2013 GMT by Andrew

@carole, snoop away!!!

08:17PM Tue, 18 June 2013 GMT by Erica

@ Andrew, yes, i don’t like being in the dark!

08:17PM Tue, 18 June 2013 GMT by carole

@ erica, this is fun, glad to be a part!

08:17PM Tue, 18 June 2013 GMT by carole

I wonder when it was made? Recently or a decade ago?

08:17PM Tue, 18 June 2013 GMT by Beth

@Carole- ah unintended interesting elements of today’s webinar -surveillance!

08:17PM Tue, 18 June 2013 GMT by Andrew

Am i starting to see things but does the row of houses spell out a word?

08:18PM Tue, 18 June 2013 GMT by Jade

@Beth, great question – it seems so contemporary

08:18PM Tue, 18 June 2013 GMT by Andrew

that def goes with the image…

08:18PM Tue, 18 June 2013 GMT by carole

Why are there construction cranes only under the shadow?

08:18PM Tue, 18 June 2013 GMT by Beth

I thought it was an older map….

08:18PM Tue, 18 June 2013 GMT by carole

@Beth, recent news puts a different lens on the image than if it was done a decade ago.

08:18PM Tue, 18 June 2013 GMT by Theresa

Big Brother has always been watching!

08:18PM Tue, 18 June 2013 GMT by Susan S

@beth great ques

08:18PM Tue, 18 June 2013 GMT by carole

documenting a bed after a good night?

08:19PM Tue, 18 June 2013 GMT by Susie

I heard the timer!

08:20PM Tue, 18 June 2013 GMT by Susan S

is it a radar? It looks like a sat…

08:20PM Tue, 18 June 2013 GMT by carole

what should I be typing?

08:21PM Tue, 18 June 2013 GMT by Erica

I think a sattelite is what circles the earth, the radars are what follow them!

08:21PM Tue, 18 June 2013 GMT by Andrew

i really agree with erica that this goes with the foretelling of technology and it’s impact on our cities and towns…

08:21PM Tue, 18 June 2013 GMT by carole

Isn’t the shadow of a radio satellite, the kind that listens to deep space?

08:21PM Tue, 18 June 2013 GMT by Beth

I think the closer I look it may be a radar and not a satellite.

08:22PM Tue, 18 June 2013 GMT by Theresa

@Erica, just some potential assertions as to what the artist may have been thinking

08:22PM Tue, 18 June 2013 GMT by Andrew

The use of shadow suggests the artist was intending to warn us to be careful.

08:22PM Tue, 18 June 2013 GMT by Theresa

i also see that the artist echoed the shape of the sat to the river….
