Paulo Ferreira’s tribute to our beloved planet Earth: Nordlys, a multi awarded time-lapse shot on Dynamic Perception Stage One.
Paulo Ferreira shared with us the following details on his video:
Earth, our home planet, is the only planet in our solar system known to harbor life.
All of the things we need to survive are provided under a thin layer of atmosphere that separates us from the uninhabitable void of space.
Earth is made up of complex, interactive systems that are often unpredictable.
Air, water, land, and life including humans, combine forces to create a constantly changing world that we are striving to understand.
Can you imagine our Earth without humans? Look for these landscapes!
Behold her beauty! Gaze with passion…
This is Earth…our home…our place…Please keep it alive! Look at her with passion … with the passion of those who love … and preserve it!
Our planet’s rapid spin and molten nickel-iron core give rise to a magnetic field, which the solar wind distorts into a teardrop shape.
The solar wind is a stream of charged particles continuously ejected from the sun.
The magnetic field does not fade off into space, but has definite boundaries.
When charged particles from the solar wind become trapped in Earth’s magnetic field, they collide with air molecules above our planet’s magnetic poles.
These air molecules then begin to glow and are known as the aurorae, or the Northern and Southern Lights.
This is Earth… our home… our place…Please keep it alive! Look at her with passion… with the passion of those who love… and preserve it!
Turn off the lights and enjoy a unique phenomenon on Earth… with the passion… of those… who love.
And the Earth is our spaceship, our beautiful globe, delicate, elegantly dancing around the sun for a finite eternity… Our beautiful ball of water and air. Is all that we have…. and all that we ever will have… its up to us to preserve and protect it. For this… is our only home… Our planet… Our Mother… Our… Earth
