Please pre-book a time slot to view the UK premiere of Luke Jerram's 'Mars' exhibition in the iconic Great Hall at the University of Bristol.
Measuring seven metres in diameter, the artwork features 120dpi detailed NASA imagery* of the Martian surface. At an approximate scale of 1:1million, each centimetre of the spherical sculpture represents 10 kilometres of the surface of Mars.
The artwork allows us to view Mars from the air and transports us to its desert wasteland. Every valley, crater, volcano and mountain is laid bare for us to inspect - Providing an opportunity to study the surface in perfect detail and imagine what it's like to step foot on this incredible planet.
The installation is a fusion of Mars imagery, light and surround sound composition created by BAFTA and Ivor Novello award winning composer Dan Jones.
Mars is co-commissioned by Kunsthal KAdE, Netherlands; UK Space Agency; Science and Technology Facilities Council, UK and UK Association for Science and Discovery Centres. With supporting partner University of Bristol, home of the Cabot Institute.
