My m² Earth

My m² Earth is designed as a collaborative photo project in the form of an online blog aiming for a bilingual dialogue that combines visual language and thematic exchange.


An online blog on global change

16 October 2015 - 15 March 2016

The Earth's surface covers approximately 510 Billion square meters. Most of them are affected by mankind because humans have never before changed Earth's habitat more than they do today. Against this background, My m² Earth raises the question, on which spot of Earth people identify local aspects of global change within their everyday life.

The term m² Earth relates to an IRI THESys exhibition from 2014, where global change was represented by two artists in a series of 1×1 m photographs. Following up on this, My m² Earth is designed as a collaborative photo project in the form of an online blog and invites all interested parties to upload own photographs and comment on their thematic and visual messages.

As global change doesn't just stand for the destruction of the environment or a loss of biodiversity, but also contains positive aspects such as urban gardening, urban animal habitats or energy-efficient housing, the submitted motifs can focus on the complete range of phenomena.

Starting on 16 October 2015, this online exhibition has grown continuously. A total number of 78 images by 52 photographers were submitted. Thanks a lot to all participants.

The project was initiated by the Integrative Research Institute on Transformations of Human-Environment Systems (IRI THESys) at the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, in cooperation with the German Committee Future Earth.
