Geophanies are depictions of Earth, our shared Home World. Unlabelled yet meaningful, they make visible the cycles, patterns, synergies, teleconnections and dynamics of our planet.
The word ‘geophany’ comes from Attic Greek gē, meaning ‘earth, land’, and phainein, ‘to reveal, to bring to light, to make visible’.
Phainein originates from the Proto-Indo-European root [*bha], meaning ‘to shine’ but also ‘to speak, to say, to tell’.
This gallery is but a sample of Globaïa’s geophanies. Most of our work has not been made public yet.
The resolution of these images is typically 1 km-per-pixel and up to 50,000 pixels wide.
