300 000 km/s

André Andrade – 300 000 km/s

The probable future expansion of the territory of Man towards Mars will bring us  to communicate through an interplanetary Internet. The distance between the  two planets will not physically allow the immediacy of the Internet as we know  it on Earth.  My project highlights the limit of the communication speed through  a simplified visualization of a permanent ping (round-trip time) between Earth  and Mars. In a world where everything is accelerating, 300’000 km/s symbolically  illustrates the limits of physics and evokes a patience that we are not used  to anymore.
