Floating Earth at Royal Albert Dock by Luke Jerram

A large representation of our planet floats in the middle of Royal Albert Dock at dusk. In the background are the 3 Graces and Museum of Liverpool.

As part of Eurovision, Luke Jerram has brought their ‘Floating Earth’ installation to the Royal Albert Dock in Liverpool. I’ve previously seen their Gaia installation at Bluedot Festival and in the Anglican Cathedral. This is different in that the model of the Earth, made up from open source NASA imagery, is floating in the dock.

There’s something surreal about staring at this world from this world.
