Geostationary TV Set
Geostationary TV Set

Geostationary television set is the working prototype for the contemporary version of a world globe (in colour), with the horizontal axial movement (longitude) taking 24 hours to make one complete revolution. The framework of the supporting structure is spherical in shape, therefore referring directly to the astronomical models built in order to explain the movement of the planets.
With the recent introduction of live satellite pictures of the earth viewed from space available via the Internet the next stage would be to connect the work to direct live satellite pictures. Year of production: 1996-8
