Presented By Luke Jerram

Gaia

Type: Installation, Music, Spectacle

Free

Taking inspiration from the mythological ancestral mother of all life on earth, and scientific discoveries in the age of space travel, Gaia will renew your appreciation for the fragile and diverse planet we call home. The first time we got to see the Earth from space was in 1972, in an image featuring a miniscule pale blue dot. Luke Jerram’s floating 3D Gaia allows audiences to view the earth up close with detailed NASA imagery, allowing us to experience the Overview Effect – feelings of awe, a profound understanding of the interconnection of all life, and a renewed sense of responsibility for the environment.

General Release tickets available from Thursday 6 August at 12 noon
