Think of a world without creativity, without culture. No science, no art, no creative collision of the two! If there’s anything that unites us all, it’s creativity. No matter who you are, where you are or what you do, we each share the capacity to fantasise, conceptualise and realise. Just imagine a world without innovation, without ideas, without invention?

Great Barrier Reef

Today we’re supporting the launch of ‘Earth perspectives’, a new artwork conceived by Olafur Eliasson for Earth Day 2020. It’s comprised of nine images featuring nine different views over the Earth. The work explores how maps, space and the earth itself are all to a certain extent construction, which we all have the power to see from other perspectives, whether individually or collectively.

Here is one of the nine Earth views above: The Great Barrier Reef, off the coast of Queensland, Australia. The world’s biggest single structure made by living organisms, now dying due to human activity and mass coral bleaching.

To create a new world view…
1. Stare at the dot on the Earth about ten seconds.
2. Then train your focus onto a blank surface.
3. An afterimage appears in the complementary colours of Eliasson’s visual.
4. You have projected a new world view.

We’re sharing this work as part of the Serpentine Galleries ‘Back to Earth’ initiative, a new, multi-year project that invites artists, scientists, architects, musicians, and more to make work that responds to the climate emergency.

Go to serpentinegalleries.org/exhibitions-events/back-earth to read more about ‘Earth perspectives’ and to download all nine animations or view on the Bloomberg Connects app.
