Reflections from Earth by Tom Van Sant with Richard Feynman
Reflections From Earth is the image of a giant eye in the Shadow Mountains of the Mojave Desert produced by light reflected from carefully adjusted mirrors and recorded by the LANDSAT satellite (eye in the sky) orbiting 500 miles above the Earth. It is the largest man-made image in the world at 2.5 km (1.5 mi.). This work was prepared for the Los Angeles Bicentennial Commission, and carried out in cooperation with NASA, US Geological Survey, City of Los Angeles Survey, and Earth Resources Satellite Data Processing Center. Special assistance to the artist was provided by Dr. William E. Evans, staff scientist, Stanford Research Institute.
