In Greek mythology Gaia is a personification of Earth.

Measuring seven metres in diameter, Gaia features 120dpi detailed NASA imagery of the Earth’s surface. The artwork creates 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.

The artwork also acts as a mirror to major events in society. In light of the current pandemic, the artwork may provide the viewer with a new perspective of our place on the planet; a sense that societies of the Earth are all interconnected and that we have a responsibility toward one another.

I hope visitors to Gaia get to see the Earth
as if from space; an incredibly beautiful and
precious place. An ecosystem we urgently
need to look after – our only home.
