    Opening ceremony and launch of the Painted Earth app.

    Painted Earth” is a painting tool (using Jan Novák’s Visual for typography) commissioned by the State Architect to celebrate the opening of the Galileo Reference Centre Noordwijk, The Netherlands.

    The Galileo Reference Centre is an important instrument of Galileo, a network of 24 satellites orbiting around our planet from 23,000 km above the earth. These satellites transmit the current time to the surface of the earth, often used for navigation systems.

    Studio Moniker:

    Once the painting tool is loaded into your mobile web browser, you can begin to draw simply by walking: walk fast and the lines transform into drops, stand still and the ink will begin to pool and bleed. When you go out with a group, the collaborative image is synced between devices in real-time and up to 200 people can draw simultaneously in one area.

    Once a painting is complete, it stays in that area forever. It might result in the largest possible artwork since its canvas covers the complete surface of our planet.

    Concept and technology: Moniker
    Technical development: Thomas Boland, Tjerk Woudsma
    Design: Jolana Sýkorová
