Luke Jerram’s spectacular touring artwork, Gaia, was at Truro Cathedral from 6-28 October 2023. Measuring seven metres in diameter, Gaia features 120dpi detailed NASA imagery of the Earth’s surface* and is suspended above the cathedral Crossing, providing the opportunity to see the planet on this scale, floating in three dimensions. A specially made surround-sound composition by BAFTA award-winning Composer Dan Jones was played alongside the sculpture.
*The imagery for the artwork has been compiled from Visible Earth series, NASA.
Below is some video footage of the exhibition.
