 The installation is 1.8 million times smaller than the real Earth, which means that each centimetre of the surface of the artwork is describing 18km on our real planet.

The monumental installation is 7 metres in diameter and brought to life from a 120dpi detailed NASA imagery, giving the opportunity for visitors to see our home planet in three dimensions and recreate that awe feeling astronauts often feel in space.

The aim of the artwork is to bring a new perspective to viewers of our planet by understanding that everything is connected to each other.

When presented indoors, Gaia slowly revolves, just like the real Earth. To enhance visitor experience a specially composed sound composition is being played, created by BAFTA Award winning composer, Dan Jones.


Gaia is a Touring Artwork
