Gaia is a touring artwork by UK artist Luke Jerram that aims to demonstrate the fragility of the planet. Measuring 6 metres in diameter it is a replica of the ‘earth’ created from detailed NASA imagery of the earth’s surface. The artwork provides a unique opportunity to view our planet, floating in three dimensions and revolving slowly.
Its creator Luke Jerram says: “I hope visitors to Gaia get to see the earth as if from space; an incredibly beautiful and precious place. An ecosystem we urgently need to look after – our only home.”
In addition to being visually dramatic, Gaia is also accompanied by a surround sound composition by BAFTA award winning composer Dan Jones.
This is a free event and for individuals or small groups there is no need to book tickets in advance.
