Raumschiff Erde

An installation for kids and young adults that deals with the topics of the environment and global warming.

Raumschiff Erde is a large size installation (14m x 8m) of Planet Earth’s geographical map. The installation main concern is the topic of the environment and the many ways the planet is effected by human behavior. The act of discovering the map is multi-layered and involves different ways of interacting, from an actual physical walk over the surface to a higher bird view of the map accompanied by sound, light and video. The visitors will explore the map and find out facts, stories, images, video clips and sounds from life on the planet. The exploration can be a passive one – similar to a visit to a natural history museum; or an active one – finding out the facts while walking over the map.
