German artist Bernd Hopfengärtner has created the worlds largest “Hello World” message ever by cutting a massive Semacode into a wheat field.

“Hello, world!” is a real installation for the virtual globe of
the software Google Earth. A Semacode measuring 160 × 160 meters was mown into a wheat field near the town of Ilmenau in the Land Thuringia. The code consists of 18 × 18 bright and dark squares producing decoded the phrase “Hello, world!”.
The project was realized in May 2006 and photographs were taken of it during a picture flight in the following month.
