‘Pale Blue Dot’ Tribute

Artist Joel Somerfield was inspired by Carl Sagan’s ‘Pale Blue Dot‘ to create lovely this animated accompaniment. He writes:

A visual response to Carl Sagan’s famed ‘Pale Blue Dot’ monologue, where he muses on our planet’s appearance in a photograph taken by the Voyager 1 space probe. The most distant photograph ever taken of Earth.

A personal project designed and created in After effects with extensive sound work created in addition to the music from Cosmos and spoken word from Sagan. Have wanted to bring visuals to something by Sagan for some time and finished this after working on it periodically over the last 3 months.
