Planet-like art

It is one of the deepest, most emotional experiences I have ever had.
Quote from Edward G. Gibson: Astronaut from Skylab 4.

Phygital Experiences

Cupola

We take part in projects that reach into space, on these complex journeys we exchange with great players. With phygital projects we bring the audience into connection with the world of possibilities in an authentic and meaningful way.

With Cupola, we want to capture the experience that astronauts have when they see Earth for the first time from space. They experience a change of perspective that changes their philosophy of life. This is what we call the “overview effect”. An effect that we recreate in an imagery room.

Planet-like art

Par rapport à l’univers, la terre est infiniment petite et fragile.

Qu’est-ce que concrètement l’Overview Effect?

Mais est-ce possible d’expérimenter l’overview effect sans aller dans l’espace?

La Cupola recrée cette expérience, au cœur d’un spectacle immersif inédit.

Have a look at just a few of the many things you can do to make an impact!

Things you can do from your couch:

1

  • Save electricity by plugging appliances into a power strip and turning them off completely when not in use, including your computer.
  • Stop paper bank statements and pay your bills online or via mobile.
  • Speak up! Ask your local and national authorities to engage in initiatives that don’t harm people or the planet. You can also voice your support for the Paris Agreement and ask your country to ratify it or sign it if it hasn’t yet.
  • Turn off the lights. Your TV or computer screen provides a cosy glow, so turn off other lights if you don’t need them.
  • Do a bit of online research and buy only from companies that you know have sustainable practices and don’t harm the environment.
  • Report online bullies. If you notice harassment on a message board or in a chat room, flag that person.
  • In addition to the above, offset your remaining carbon emissions! You can calculate your carbon footprint and purchase climate credits from Climate Neutral Now. In this way, you help reduce global emissions faster!”

  • Shop local. Supporting neighbourhood businesses keeps people employed and helps prevent trucks from driving far distances.
  • Let your favourite businesses know that ocean-friendly seafood is on your shopping list.
  • Shop only for sustainable seafood. There are now many apps that will tell you what is safe to consume.
  • Bike, walk or take public transport. Save the car trips for when you’ve got a big group.
  • Use a refillable water bottle and coffee cup. Cut down on waste and maybe even save money at the coffee shop.
  • Bring your own bag when you shop. Pass on the plastic bag and start car- rying your own reusable totes.
  • Take fewer napkins. You don’t need a handful of napkins to eat your take- out. Take just what you need.
  • Shop vintage. Brandnew isn’t necessarily best. See what you can repurpose from second-hand shops.
  • Donate what you don’t use. Local charities will give your gently used clothes, books and furniture a new life.
  • Take advantage of your right to elect the leaders in your country and local community

  • Give fruits or snacks that you don’t want to someone who needs and is asking for help.
  • Does everyone at work have access to healthcare? Find out what your rights are to work. Fight against inequality.
  • Mentor young people. It’s a thoughtful, inspiring and a powerful way to guide someone towards a better future.
  • Voice your support for equal pay for equal work.
  • Lend your voice to talk about the lack of toilets in many communities around the world!
  • Make sure your company uses energy efficient heating and cooling technology.
  • Raise your voice against any type of discrimination in your office. Everyone is equal regardless of their gender, race, sexual orientation, social background and physical abilities.
  • Bike, walk or take public transport to work. Save the car trips for when you’ve got a big group.
  • Organize a No Impact Week at work. Learn to live more sustainably for at least a week: un.org/sustainabledevelopment/be-the-change
