Building a future for humanity in space
Relativity Space is a VC-backed startup reimagining the way orbital rockets are built and flown. Relativity is based in Los Angeles and recently acquired two large mixed media pieces Overview and Linked by Richelle Gribble as the centerpiece to their office. The artworks help establish Relativity’s brand as merging rockets, space, technology, and nature in a more organic, creative, iconic new approach to exploring Earth and the solar system.
Overview and Linked are large-scale, mixed media paintings inspired by the networks which shape and connect our planet. Inspired by author Frank White’s concept of the “overview effect,” these works aim to create a renewed sensation of viewing Earth as if from space to more clearly see our interconnectivity from a new perspective. By merging biological, technological, and social systems across micro and macro timescales, Overview and Linked suggest we are evolving towards hive-like connectivity within a complex planetary society.
