What is the relation between what we see and what is there? Follow a group of scientists as they set out to approach the boundaries of satellite imaging in the forests of Finland. Their quest: develop an improved interpretation model of satellite data for remote sensing research, allowing surface features to be distinguished beyond what is shown optically. Sheug Yiu interweaves archival imagery, documentary photography, experimental data, and artistic work to acquaint us with the complexity of seeing in the age of algorithms. Not only does this book explore the act of seeing, it also observes the evolution of visual technology in conversation with our perception and surroundings.
