The awe-inspiring Gaia artwork, created by artist Luke Jerram, has been unveiled in Birmingham for the first time today, at award-winning events and conference venue, Millennium Point.

The major art installation is free-of-charge to see and will be on display at Millennium Point from today (01 Feb) until Monday 28th March, giving visitors the unique opportunity to view the Earth as it appears from space.

Created from detailed NASA imagery of the Earth’s surface and measuring seven metres in diameter, Gaia invites guests to appreciate the beauty and majesty of our planet on an awe-inspiring scale. The spectacular artwork is 1.8 million times smaller than the Earth, with each centimetre of the sculpture depicting 18km of the Earth’s surface.

The installation is on display in Millennium Point’s impressive atrium, suspended from above and slowly revolving, giving visitors the chance to view the Earth from every angle as never before. The artwork is also accompanied by a specially created surround sound composition by BAFTA award-winning composer Dan Jones.

What’s more, to celebrate Gaia’s arrival, Millennium Point has announced an exciting programme of film screenings, family activities and themed events throughout February and March, which are now available to book online via the venue’s website. Events include a special screening of Baz Luhrmann’s Romeo + Juliet over Valentines weekend; film screenings of family-favourites The Little Mermaid and Moana during February half term, a Silent Disco underneath the Gaia globe, and much more.

Abbie Vlahakis, CEO at Millennium Point, said: “We’re delighted to see this profound artwork on display, which encourages us to appreciate the beauty of our planet like never before.

“Gaia has been displayed across the globe - from Rome to Shanghai - so we’re thrilled to bring it to the very heart of Birmingham for the first time, so that people across the region can enjoy this incredible artwork up close. We can’t wait to welcome visitors for an experience that’s out of this world!”

Luke Jerram, artist and creator of Gaia, commented: “I’m excited that Gaia is now on display in Birmingham, and I hope that people from across the city and beyond will have the chance to experience a new perspective of our place on the planet.

“I hope visitors to Gaia at Millennium Point get to see the Earth as if from space; an incredibly beautiful and precious place. It is an ecosystem we urgently need to look after and our only home.”

Gaia is free to visit, open to all ages and no booking is required. For more information and to plan your visit, go to

    I lost a lot of knowledge during the lockdown, making it challenging for me to resume my studies. My student loans began to mount. Without cheap dissertation writing services I would have had a terrible time managing them and finishing school. It's wonderful that there are services available to assist pupils in overcoming challenges.

    When I need help writing, I always look to the professionals. Since they consistently produce original work that is delivered on schedule, I can recommend them as a statement of purpose writer who works online. They also helped me get into college and receive good grades from my lecturers, which I liked and is important for students!

    It's hardly unexpected that you give the book's cover as much attention as its genre. Although the interior content is still the most crucial element in my opinion, the cover is not unimportant. I may therefore read my favorite novels over and over again. One of them is pride and prejudice, for instance look at this web-site . I recently came across writings regarding this book, and they motivated me to create my own. And by clicking here, you can access these amazing pieces that further demonstrate how much I adore this book.
