The Overview Effect is described as the experience of seeing the earth from a cosmic perspective for the first time. Seen with all its wonderful textures and colours living under a paper thin atmosphere that protects all that lives there from the harshness of space. When seen from this perspective some astronauts undergo a cognitive shift in awareness. This change causes human conflicts and man made boundaries to disappear bringing us all together in a singular planetary society, Spaceship Earth.
This has only effected a handful of our brave explorers all of which have found it difficult to explain what it was they experienced. “Stupefied” made stupid by the overwhelming beauty of our planet.
“Infinite Horizon” is our attempt to visualise a single moment in time, the cognitive shift experienced by an astronaut. A moment so profound so all encompassing and beautiful that words were simply not enough.
Our Friends over at Echoic Audio provided the beautiful, emotive soundtrack.
