Bell Museum: Gaia Earth Sculpture Installation – Saint Paul, MN

Gaia

Join us for Gaia, a touring installation by UK artist Luke Jerram, Now through – August 14th.

Gaia is an internally-lit sculpture of the Earth featuring imagery from NASA’s Visible Earth project. At 23 feet in diameter, it presents the Earth at a scale 1.8 million times smaller than its real size. The work includes a surround sound composition by BAFTA award-winning composer Dan Jones.

The installation evokes the overview effect, a shift in awareness experienced by some astronauts during space flight. It’s an experience of awe, interconnection, and renewed responsibility to care for the planet.
