Selfies can serve science… and arts! NASA has just released a preliminary low-resolution image (3,200 million pixels). It’s a gorgeous mosaic of over 36,000 ‘selfies’ featuring the Earth’s surface.

NASA image of The Earth with 36,000 selfies

The space agency received these selfies to celebrate the 2014 Day of The Earth. This initiative invited people worldwide to go outside, to take a picture of themselves, and to share it on social networks.

The result has been a funny new vision of our planet.

The mosaic ‘Global selfie’ was built with more than 36,000 individual photographs taken from more than 50,000 images tagged #GlobalSelfie and published on April 22 2014, Earth Day, on Twitter , Instagram , Facebook, Google+ and Flickr.

The project was designed to promote environmental awareness and recognize the ongoing work of the agency to protect our planet.

The ‘selfies’ were posted by people from all continents and 113 countries and regions. Great!!!

** A selfie is a self-portrait photograph, typically taken with a hand-held digital camera or camera phone. Selfies are often shared on social networking services such as Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, Facebook, and Tumblr. They are often casual, and are typically taken either with a camera held at arm’s length or in a mirror.

Enjoy your day, Yareah friends. Art is everywhere and up to you!

“I like the idea of the documentary as a portrait. There’s not a chronological beginning, middle, and end structure. You build something in the editing room that’s shaped by getting to know the person and digging deeper, unpeeling the layers of them as you get to know them.” Spike Jonze.

I love Jonze ideas! And what better than a portrait of our blue Earth as the result of a general collaboration, of a huge combination of self-portraits of smiling people, who love nature and space. Congratulations to everybody who has collaborated in this creative project.
