Epicenter's Antipode, a site-specific billboard on the Frontier*

Using the longitude and latitude coordinates of the Epicenter's antipodal point, I acquired a satellite photograph from NASA’s online image database. This photograph was printed on a billboard which was installed down the street from the Epicenter's headquarters, September 16-October 21, 2011.

This project was supported in part by the Utah Division of Arts & Museums, with funding from the State of Utah and the National Endowment for the Arts. Billboard image courtesy of the Image Science & Analysis Laboratory, NASA Johnson Space Center: Mission STS61A, Roll 31, Frame 68.

Sometimes the best way to understand the place you are in is to first consider its opposite.
