Mostrando a terra de cima, realçando o impacto humano, e mudando a forma como vemos o nosso planeta. É isso que o Daily Overview, uma conta de instagram faz.
O Daily Overview foi inspirado, pelo Overview Effect. Este termo refere-se a sensação que os astronautas têm, quando olham “para baixo” e veem a Terra como um todo, apreciando assim nossa casa em sua totalidade, podendo refletir sobre sua beleza e fragilidade.
Daqui de baixo, é impossível apreciar plenamente a beleza e complexidade das coisas que já construímos, a enorme complexidade dos sistemas que desenvolvemos, ou o impacto devastador que nós tivemos em nosso planeta
Pensando nisso, o Daily Overview concentra-se em publicar imagens de lugares e momentos onde a atividade humana – para melhor ou para pior -, moldou a paisagem.
Confira abaixo algumas imagens hipnotizantes dessa organização sistemática em grande escala que criamos, nossas cores vibrantes mas não esqueça de ir além da estética – considere o que tudo isso significa para o nosso planeta.

Standing at 2,717 feet (828m), the Burj Khalifa in Dubai, UAE is the tallest building in the world (and casts quite a long shadow!). The design of the 163-floor structure is an abstraction of the Hymenocallis, a type of desert flower that has long petals extending from its center. The building has been very well received since it opened in 2010; however, its construction was very controversial as it was built primarily by workers from South Asia and East Asia who earned low wages and were housed in abysmal conditions.

New Delhi serves as the capital of India and is home to more than 21 million residents in its metro area. Officially inaugurated in February 1931, the city was planned by British architects Sir Edwin Lutyens and Sir Herbert Baker.

For a sense of scale, this Overview shows approximately four square miles. Uma foto publicada por Daily Overview (@dailyoverview) em

The town of Palmanova, Italy is recognized by its concentric layout known as a star fort.

The holiday of Passover commemorates the liberation of the Jewish people from slavery in Egypt and their journey to the land of Israel. For today’s PassOverview, we’ve captured Nahalal, a moshav in northern Israel. A moshav is a type of cooperative agricultural community that is composed of individual farms and is governed by an elected council. Founded in 1921, Nahalal is one of the oldest moshavim in the country and its layout of concentric circles is the basis for the design of many such communities established in Israel before it became a state in 1948.
