Earth as Art: Observing Our World from Space

Monday, April 16, 2018
12:00am – 11:59pm

Repeats daily until 04/22/2018.

Storrs Campus
Stevens Gallery (B Level of Babbidge Library)

Gallery is open during library hours.

The winsome of earth is clear, and the artistry ranges from the surreal to the sublime. Satellite images document a dynamic story, a story of the peak of this new geologic epoch – Anthropocene – ‘The Age of Man’. This art gallery - a unique fusion fusion of art and science - will feature visually stunning and scientifically valuable images of various areas from around the world captured by earth-observing civilian satellites. The exhibits will present appealing patterns, shapes, colors, and textures of the natural and human-made landscape as well as sentient views of forced migration triggered by racial aggression and ethnic tension. Enjoy the beauty of our planet and understand how we are changing its face in order to meet our increasing appetite for resources.
