We're over the moon to reveal our immersive programme for The Outer Space, a dedicated after hours spot brimming with audio-visual fire and light art installations.
Located in Jodrell Bank's Arboretum, The Outer Space will include the magnificent art installation Museum of the Moon by Luke Jerrum. Measuring seven meters in diameter, the moon features 120dpi detailed NASA imagery of the lunar surface and is a fusion of lunar imagery, moonlight and surround sound composition. Squid Soup the UK-based international group of artists, researchers, technologists and designers will be on site with their project Submergence - an immersive walkthrough experience.
Central to the bluedot art experience is the awe-inspiring Lovell Telescope. Using audio ‘loops' created between mission control and the lunar module, fused with signals and recordings generated by Jodrell Bank as it tracked the moon landings, celebrated light artists Illuminos will transform the Lovell Telescope with their Lunar Loops Telescope Projection.
Other notable additions to the art line-up include a Space Walk Lunar Procession, Titan The Robot, Eye of The Storm, Spacewalk Fire Sculptures by Walk The Plank and a world premiere of Talk to the Skies by Ithaca, all of which are funded by the Arts Council England.
