Earth Lounge Vol. 3 Where am I? - My Position in the Universe -

* This exhibition has ended.

Earth Lounge Vol. 3 Exhibition Outline

The Earth Lounge series is based on the concept of "thinking about the Earth under the symbol exhibit Geo-Cosmos" and it introduces unique projects that focus on the theme of our planet Earth. We will present an opportunity where you can feel the existence of the Earth that tends to be forgotten in our daily lives. You will see this under the beautiful image of our Earth projected by the spherical display "Geo-Cosmos," the symbol of Mirakan.

The 3rd Earth Lounge allows you to view the world with a new sense of position sensation as our ordinary awareness is clearly enhanced by the new perception made possible by cutting-edge science.

There will be 5 "tools" that allow you to find out the position of yourself relative to the Earth with various scales and precision (+imagination). Come gather under the Geo-Cosmos with the simple question "Where am I as of March 2005?"
