Artist INSA Creates the World’s Largest Animated GIF Visible from Space

In late 2014 UK street artist INSA (previously), travelled to Rio De Jaeiro with a team of 20 to create a uniquely ambitious art project; the world’s largest animated GIF. The giant animated artwork, the most ambitious of its kind ever attempted, was painted on the ground in Rio in four stages, over four days. INSA and whisky brand Ballantine's collaborated on the project enlisting the commercial satellite division of Airbus to access a pair of satellites which could be tasked with shooting a 100km square image at a resolution of one pixel per 50 cm squared. INSA explains, "I wanted to cross both worlds and make work that existed in online space even more than it existed in real space."
