Combining satellite photos to create a conceptual animation

When it comes to creating a work of art, satellite images are probably the last elements that come to mind. But Kevin McGloglin, by putting these images together, has created an engaging conceptual animation that is worth watching.

“Epoch” (literally meaning the beginning of a new chapter) is a new video by Irish-based visual artist Kevin McGloughlin whose stunning animation was created over several months using only Google Earth satellite images. The changes and patterns in this animation were created by combining satellite images taken over several months of areas with similar land features.

McLaughlin writes about this work:

Epoch is a visual representation of how we relate to the Earth and its imperishable glory. We have a little chance here; An obscure and mysterious era. The fragility that exists in all aspects of life is an undeniable fact. We are vulnerable, just like Mother Earth.

Suppose this project reminds you of Arena by Paraik McGloughlin. It is interesting that Kevin and his twin brother Paraik initially planned to present an animation together. However, the intensive work schedule and multiple projects prevented the two from working together, but they still hope. They finally make the movie they planned to make from the beginning together.
