First Earth Selfie

Love this Slow Factory scarf featuring the first color image of the whole Earth from 1967. The image was taken with a black an white TV camera which took three photos with a red, green and a blue filter to create the color image. The small ball in front of the picture is a colour match card.

  1. If your can, listen to a song by Caetano Veloso called Terra, and if you can read the lyrics translated from portuguese. He sings about how while this great singer was in jail (Brazilian dictatorship) he saw the first picture of earth. It´s a love song to this girl, Earth.
    I am sure you will love it.
    Cheers and love your work, from Argentina
