3rd Digital Art (Interactive Art) Division Excellence Award
Earth from Above on the web
ITO Koji [Japan]
Reason for Award
The surface of the Earth seen from afar strikes us dumb with its beauty.The importance of providing this kind of imagery across national borders on the Web should not be underestimated. The photographs and video taken by the photographers represented on this Web site are superb, while the large screen, high resolution data is remarkably compact. More than a mere gallery, the playful interactivity of this site shines.
