First, there was a scale version of the Moon touring around the world. Now there’s a scale version of our planet earth and it’s touring around a few places in the UK. It will be presented in art exhibitions and festivals around the world over the coming years and it is a great thing to see as a family.

Gaia is an artwork by the UK artist Luke Jerram. The installation measures seven metres in diameter and it was created from 120dpi detailed NASA images of the Earth’s surface. You will get to see our planet floating in front of you in three dimensions.

The piece has been created to give you a sense of awe for the planet which only astronauts get to experience in real life. The artist hopes that 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.

As well as the sculpture there is a specially made surround sound composition by BAFTA award-winning composer Dan Hones. The sculpture is 1.8 million times smaller than the real earth. They will be exhibiting Gaia in both indoor and outdoor settings.

Luke Jerram was also the creator of the popular Museum of the Moon sculpture which has also toured the world. We were lucky enough to see it at the Natural History Museum in London. It was certainly quite a wondrous thing to see and I would imagine this will be just as interesting to see.
