Harbin Internat'l Ice and Snow Festival 2012

Harbin Internat'l Ice and Snow Festival 2012 | Global education = global understanding | Scoop.it
The annual Harbin International Ice and Snow Festival has been held since 1963, interrupted for a number of years during the Cultural Revolution until it was resumed in 1985. Harbin is the capital of Heilongjiang province, in northeastern China. 

 

Captured in this photoessay are grandiose, yet ephemeral landscapes.  Why construct these monumental landscapes?  Like the fleeting World Fair landscapes, how do they transform space and place?

EARTH Masterpieces

The natural landscapes shown as captured by satellite imagery is as beautiful as anything artists have ever created.  Some of the colors shown in the video may seem otherworldy.  Most of those color anomalies are due to the fact that remotely sensed images have more information in them than just what we see in the visible portion of the electromagnetic spectrum.  Some of these images are processed to show different bands so we can visually interpret data such as what is in the near infra-red band, skewing the color palette.
