Has our planet become an object of design? In today's world of geo-engineering, cloud seeding and ambitious projects to control planetary ecosystems, the question seems more justified than ever. We map the world using cartography, we shape it with spatial planning. We model the planet to predict natural phenomena and try to influence it through climate control. Objective Earth focuses on a posture that has existed since the first human settlements, that gained pace with the scientific breakthroughs of the Age of Enlightenment and, in step with industrial revolutions, was furthered by a techno-scientific vision: to see the planet as designable. Designers, artists, and researchers investigate this "becoming object" of planet Earth.
