It is an amazing experience to change our perspective sometimes on the way we see things. For example, the way we view the world today, is quite an ordinary observation. Everything is routine for us, since we walk the same roads everyday, an do almost the same things. However, if we see these roads and everything in a full picture.
Daily Overview is a new project that posts satellite photographs daily from places around the world that have been touched by human activity. The project was inspired by and based on the idea known as the Overview Effect. To sum it up, the overview effect is what astronauts experience when they look at Earth from space.
On this website you’re able to see places from all over the world in all kind of categories. Agriculture, cities, industrial areas, nature, ocean, people.
Below there’s a video that will explain more on the overview effect, also some awesome images found with Apple Maps that were captured by Digital Globe. These images are a great reminder of how beautiful our world is.

South African multidisciplinary artist Daniel Popper is known for his colossal figurative sculptures and spectacular public art installations at art and music events around the world. Daniel is well-known for his massive public art installations at top festivals like the Electric Forest festival in the USA, Boom Festival in Portugal, Rainbow Serpent festival in Australia, as well as Afrikaburn in the Tankwa Karoo in South Africa.
One of Popper’s most recent sculptures, Modem Swamp, was an epic, 8-meter-tall (26-foot-tall) female figure at Modem Festival in Croatia. Created using steel and fiberglass, and covered in concrete, the whimsical character is posed holding her face in front of her head like a mask, revealing the wild jungle growing within her skull. At night, projection mapping makes the piece look like it’s made from chrome.
Each sculpture has a story behind it, but I like to leave the questions about each piece a little bit open, so people can come and bring their own ideas to it,” Popper claimed. “I want people to come here and ask questions of themselves about their relationship with nature.
Do stories and artists like this matter to you? I bet they do. Scroll down to see more of Popper’s incredible sculptures and explore even more of his growing portfolio on his instagram.
