World War II From Space is a 90 minute documentary visualising key events from World War II from the vantage point of space.

Noema means "the process of thought"
I created a visual that I thought would relate to this and take you on a journey inside the mind and how vast it can be. Some of the idea's brought up initially aren't as clear as I would have liked, but time constraints and other factors meant the hasty completion of this piece.
