Details

From the beginnings of human history, the moon has acted as a ‘cultural mirror’ to our beliefs, understanding, and ways of seeing. Over the centuries, the moon has been interpreted as a god and as a planet, and has inspired artists, poets, scientists, writers and musicians the world over. Measuring seven metres in diameter, Luke Jerram’s internally lit spherical sculpture of the moon features detailed NASA imagery of the lunar surface. Witness the ethereal blue light cast by a full moon over Leeds Dock, and bathe in the atmosphere of the surround sound composition created by BAFTA and Ivor Novello award winning composer, Dan Jones.
