Content of the Exhibition

Our vision is to show and raise awareness for the beauty, but also the fragility of Earth. In order to achieve this, we have designed an exhibition in cooperation with the natural history museum “Haus der Natur” in Salzburg, presenting images from our publication “Human Footprint”.

The pictures of the exhibition are meant to show in an aesthetical but also dramatic way how mankind has shaped and influenced nature. 50 images, taken from approximately 600 kilometres above the planet’s surface, depict Earth in a colourful image that is meant to encourage a more sustainable use of our planet’s limited resources.

As if looking at Earth from an aeroplane, the images represent the following seven topics:

– Cities
– Extreme types of settlements
– Tourism
– Mining
– Agriculture
– Traffic
– Energy

The exhibition aims at encouraging the visitors to re-evaluate the way they think about Earth. Each image includes a short description of the depicted scenery.
