GAIA - Luke Jerram

An awe-inspiring installation measuring seven metres in diameter, Gaia features 120dpi detailed NASA imagery of the Earth’s surface. The artwork provides the opportunity to see our planet on this scale, floating in three-dimensions.

The installation creates a sense of the Overview Effect, which was first described by author Frank White in 1987. Common features of the experience for astronauts are a feeling of awe for the planet, a profound understanding of the interconnection of all life, and a renewed sense of responsibility for taking care of the environment.

Gaia has been created in partnership with the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC), Bluedot and the UK Association for Science and Discovery Centres.

Luke Jerram’s multidisciplinary practice involves the creation of sculptures, installations and live arts projects. He is known worldwide for his large scale public artworks.

Experiencing GAIA is FREE & un-ticketed.
