Stunning Google Earth GIFs show how much humans have changed the planet

From the rise of cities to the depletion of the Amazon, humans are vastly changing our planet’s landscape. “Mind the Earth,” a new exhibition at the Danish Architecture Centre in Copenhagen, Denmark, is illustrating the world’s transformation using images from Google Earth. The exhibit is focused on four themes: food, energy, transport and water.

According to DesignBoom, visitors will enter a dark room with aerial photos projected onto the floor. The shifts in the world will be visualized by displaying the same area through different periods of time. There will also be additional information and “thought-provoking philosophy” to help expand visitors’ thinking.
