Our task must be to free ourselves by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature and its beauty. – Albert Einstein

Last year we brought the moon from the sky, this year we will bring the earth below our feet. More precise, Gaia, the itinerant exhibition by the British artist Luke Jerram.

A large scale model of planet earth, the Gaia installation is 1.8 million times smaller than earth, meaning that every single centimeter of the installation corresponds with a real size of 18 kilometers. The installations presence in our city offers us the unique possibility of expressing the overview effect, which is expereminted only by astronauts.

The earth, as it is seen from the cosmic space, can be seen at a much smaller distance. Probably at the smallest currently possible. An maybe now, looking at it so close, we will realize how small it is in size. and maybe we will become aware that, until new evidence surfaces, it is the only place capable of sustaining life.

Are you aware of this?
