Gaia at Keele Univeristy

November 6 @ 12:00 am - November 27 @ 12:00 am

Appetite and ArtsKeele are so excited to be bringing Luke Jerram’s GAIA to Keele Chapel at Keele University from Saturday 6 November to Saturday 27 November. The artwork, which measures six metres in diameter, features 120dpi (Dots Per Inch) detailed NASA imagery of the Earth’s surface*. GAIA provides the opportunity to see our planet on this scale, floating in three-dimensions.

The installation creates a sense of the Overview Effect, something astronauts often experience as they look down on the Earth from space. In light of the current COVID-19 pandemic, GAIA may give the viewer a new perspective of our place on the planet, reminding us how precious it is and that we all have a responsibility to protect it for future generations.

A specially made surround sound composition by BAFTA award winning Composer Dan Jones is played alongside the sculpture.

There will be a full programme of events running alongside GAIA.  More information coming soon so do keep checking back.
