Satellite Building is a collaborative project by Kasper Andreasen and Jan Kempenaers. On the facade of the new Guildhall in Beveren, Belgium, a satellite image from 2008 is perforated in the balustrades of a hundred meter long building. The rasterised image depicts the identical location where the old Guildhall stood before its reconstruction. Past meets present as the building’s facade becomes a projection surface for a ‘historical' photograph. The publication is a companion volume which documents the project through various images and drawings. It is accompanied by an essay from Steven Humblet and a short account by the two artists.
