Even though Gaia has left us, there is always something going on at Millennium Point, keep in touch on our What’s On and hope to see you at our next event.
We can’t wait to welcome you back!
What is Gaia?
Gaia was formulated by Luke Jerram, who is a British installation artist. He creates sculptures, large installations, and live arts projects.
The unique installation features 120dpi detailed NASA imagery of the Earth’s Surface on a globe measuring seven metres in diameter. The artwork is 1.8 million times smaller than the real Earth with each centimetre of the internally lit sculpture describing 18km of the Earth’s surface.
By standing 211m away from the artwork, visitors will be able to see the Earth as it appears from the moon. The installation creates a sense of the ‘Overview Effect’, which was first described by author Frank White in 1987. Common features of the experience for astronauts are a feeling of awe for the planet, a profound understanding of the interconnection of all life, and a renewed sense of responsibility for taking care of the environment.

To remember the fantastic Gaia exhibition, Millennium Point’s CEO Abbie Vlahakis caught up with the Artist behind Gaia, Luke Jerram to chat more about the piece and his inspirations behind it.
Hundreds of people from across Birmingham and the wider region have marvelled at the breath-taking earth artwork, which combines NASA satellite imagery with an awe-inspiring soundtrack to invoke a sense of profound love for the earth.
