Thanks to the 576 manhours provided by whiskey maker Ballantine’s (yes, the video is essentially a cool ad), street artist INSA was able to create gif-iti over 154,774 square feet of ground in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil — that’s more than two and a half football fields — just across a marina from one of the city’s airports.

The area was painted and repainted, while two Pleiades satellites 431 miles above the earth took an image on each of four days. Put together, the result is this vibrant, pulsating patchwork of yellow and pink hearts, a recurring image in INSA’s art.
