Salt Drawing Lake
Single channel video
Conceptual drawing with light aircraft across the centre of Lake Frome, a dry salt lake in the Flinders Ranges South Australia.
The video drawing was based on the direction of a orbital arc of the EO-1, the first of NASA's Millenium Program Earth Observing series of satellites. Hyperion is an experimental hyperspectral sensor carried on EO-1. Lake Frome was chosen primarily for its brightness, but also for its expected temporal invariance and homogeneity at the resolution of Hyperion (30m pixels). At larger scales (1000m), there is variation in the thickness of the salt crust that alters the surface characteristics providing a range of spectral characteristics.
