In 2010, Steffen Knoesgaard, Fredrik Ekholm and Simon Holmedal, created the first ever moving imagery for the community art project Gaia: The Gaia10 official trailer. Two years later the project has changed from coordinated yearly releases, into an ongoing collab- oration as the community run website gaian.me to mark the new direction of the community, curator Marius Bauer returned to Steffen and Fredrik and commissioned an updated trailer.
Seeing this as an excellent opportunity to blow off some creative steam, they conceptualized an idea to recreate the trailer based on the original thoughts, but updated for 2012. During the process designer/animator Linus Lundin – a long time collaborator, joined the project as well as musician and sound designer Jochen Mader.
