Visual Chart for Gaïa Images

GAÏA (Mother Earth)
( /ˈɡeɪ.ə/ or /ˈɡaɪ.ə/; from Ancient Greek Γαῖα, "land" or "earth")
The goddess & personification of Earth in ancient Greek religion. Gaia was the great mother of all: the heavenly gods, the Titans and the Giants were born from her union with Uranus (the sky), while the sea-gods were born from her union with Pontus (the sea). Her equivalent in the Roman pantheon was Tellus.

3. the human relations: the connexions 
 
Tools&Research
- Designing for Emotion, by Aarron WALTER, A Book Appart
- How to translate "fusion" into visuals
- Researches on a Camera (How does it takes pictures, how does that works?)
 
Solutions
- The Main idea of the design chart is to use a circle shape (world, whole, human, perfection…) composed by elements combined together (connexions) that creates the camera aperture system. From wide open to almost closed, in three steps.
- The round shape patterned with a ground texture represents the earth. Instead of being divided in continents and lands it is divided in colors.
- The color chart was choosed for its natural composition and its deep cultural expression.
- There are 7 colors. 7 is the magic number in the nature: 7 Rainbow colors, 7 days in a week, planets in the solar system and 7 related metals, 7 chakras…
