Description: In this art project, random images of the Galilean Moon Europe from the NASA archive are overlaid pixel by pixel with current images from European webcams in rhythm with the Jupiter Symphony by Mozart. The art project links and connects the continent of Europe with the 1610 by Galileo Galilei discovered Jupiter moon, which is around 660 million kilometers away. Each time the application is started it loads a new webcam image from Berlin, Rome, Paris, Oslo, Zürich or Chur and a new image from Europa. There is never the same combination.
Current version: The current version achieves the goals set at the beginning of the GLAM hack 2020.
Future improvements: depending on the two dynamically loaded pictures the sizes are not equal. They have to be resized.
