Title: Dead Pixel in Google Earth
82 x 82 cm burned square
Dutch artist Helmut Smits perhaps perturbed by a dead pixel on his own desktop monitor got to wondering what a dead pixel would look like in the real world.
Using Google Earth as his reference point Smits calculated that a single pixel when viewed from a height of 1km above the ground would measure 82 square centimetres. So he burned an 82 cm2 patch into the ground near his Rotterdam studio.
