Temporary Constellations

What if you could see GPS satellites? At Buckley Williams we’ve been playing with ways of seeing satellites, rather than seeing through them, and experimenting with different ways to follow the passage of orbits above. One of our experiments is a set of visualisations called Temporary Constellations.

Each Temporary Constellation is a different cluster of navigation satellites, memorialised as a Christmas card. As the satellites above continuously shift and move relative to us, they form ad-hoc constellations. These constellations only last a single moment in time, and then they’re gone.
