The sculpture Satellite was featured in CAFKA 2009: Veracity (September 2009). The sculpture is a full scale replica of a Global Positioning System (GPS) satellite that was installed in a public park, appearing as if it had crashed to earth. This work is an attempt to question the authority we grant technology by confronting the viewer with a narrative that highlights the failure of scientific knowledge.
