The Great Wall of China was initially used to protect those inside of the Chinese borders from intruders. Following suit, the Saudi Arabian government is now constructing a six hundred foot “Great Wall” to keep members of ISIS, and other extremists, at bay. The plans for this construction started in 2003, and they are now finally coming to pass. The wall itself will have five layers of fencing, some reaching peaks of one hundred and twenty five feet, and will also serve to keep Shiite militants from entering Saudi Arabia’s borders.
In an effort to transform how we see our world, Daily Overview came up with a project where they share satellite images taken from Digital Globes every day.
Highly inspired by the experience from Overview Effect, this project will change your perspective through a cognitive shift of how you see the world in the same manner that astronauts do when it is their first time to see the Earth from outer space.
Organizers behind this project aspire that: “The mesmerizing flatness seen from this vantage point, the surprising comfort of systematic organization on a massive scale, or the vibrant colors that we capture will hopefully turn your head.”
