Art and space for Earth Day 2017

Art and space for Earth Day 2017

For Earth Day 2017 European Space Agency celebrated using art and space, because every day is Earth Day. A large ‘third paradise’ symbol was installed at the Italian space agency ASI premises in Rome, Italy, and was imaged from space by ASI’s Cosmo SkyMed satellite.

Produced by ASI and partners, RAM Radioartemobile, Thales Alenia Space, Telespazio, E-Geos (responsible for the distribution of Cosmo SkyMed images), with Cittadellarte – Fondazione Pistoletto, this art installation was developed in the framework of a partnership with the Italian artist Michelangelo Pistoletto for ESA astronaut Paolo Nespoli’s Vita mission.

This initiative is a spin-off of the SPAC3 art project, an app that ESA is developing with RAM Radioartemobile to encourage the active involvement of online users in the creation of a collective artwork using space images.
