"In 1957, Yves Klein stated that the Earth was entirely blue. It was on that occasion that he created a Blue Relief globe (...). Four years later...cosmonaut Gagarin stated in April 1961 that the Earth is of a deep intense blue!!!"
Excerpt from : Yves Klein le Monochrome, il nuovo realismo del colore, Milan, Galleria Apollinaire, november 1961

The pure color becomes the symbol of a loss of landmark, a magic cover that transforms the terrestrial into aerial.
