If Earth and life as we know it was going to end tomorrow and you could only send out one object to space to describe Earth’s History, what would you include? What do you think is crucial or unique to explain the history of Earth’s existence? Would you focus on nature, the human race, the ecosystem, science, religion, love, medicine, history, the atmosphere, music or maybe family?

The purpose of “All of Earth’s History” is to visually show the physical progression of Earth. It shows the change in Earth’s physical form with the constant movement of plate tectonics creating landmasses. It also visually represents where the first complex civilization started and how they spread over time. I further pushed the idea of progression by stacking each map onto a stand so you can flip through to see the spread of both the landmasses and human civilization.
