Satellite dishes add fine art to bad TV


This project called “District Art” took place in an Arabic section of the Netherlands town of Utrecht where after noticing the amount of satellite dishes in the city, designers attempted to bring the population closer to each other. By adding decorative stickers to the dishes, each previously ugly eyesore was transformed into an icon of sorts. Next up would be to make them into computer icons and turn the block into a cluttered desktop.

    Of course, the canonical thing to paint on a satellite dish is a happy face. Unfortunately, my wife wouldn’t let me do that with the satellite dish found on the property we bought. Sigh. So I plugged the holes in it, turned it on its back and buried it up to its gills. So now we have a wee little tiny pond populated by frogs and, well, and by algae.

    One question arose after read your article. If we made art on dish,then is it effect on network results??? Means it would be reverse effect on network strength??
