Daily Overview features a satellite photo everyday that shows us a view of our planet that we can’t appreciate from our perspective. The project is inspired by The Overview Effect, which they nicely explain: “This term refers to the sensation astronauts have when given the opportunity to look down and view the Earth as a whole. They have the chance to appreciate our home in its entirety, to reflect on its beauty and its fragility all at once. That’s the cognitive shift that we hope to inspire (…) Common features of the experience 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”.
The beauty of the images is overwhelming. They look surreal and spectacular at the same time. From the green fields to the urbanized spaces and the top of the buildings, including the intricate highways. A really inspiring project.
PD: Don’t you think they could make great fabric patterns?
