Overview is a large-scale, mixed-media painting inspired by the networks which shape and connect our planet. Inspired by author Frank White’s concept of the “overview effect,” this painting aims to create a renewed sensation of viewing Earth as if from space in order to more clearly see our interconnectivity from a new perspective. By merging biological, technological, and social systems across micro and macro timescales, artist Richelle Gribble suggests that we are evolving towards hive-like connectivity within a complex planetary society.
