Light Night @ Various Locations all over the City! 08/02
Discover stunning light installations, exciting performances and plenty of opportunities to get involved all inspired by the 50th anniversary of Apollo 11 spaceflight and landing of the first man on the moon. Don’t miss Museum of the Moon at the Royal Concert Hall, a touring work by UK artist Luke Jerram. Measuring seven metres in diameter, the moon features detailed NASA imagery of the lunar surface. At an approximate scale of 1:500,000, each centimetre of the internally lit spherical sculpture represents 5km of the moon’s surface. The installation is a fusion of lunar imagery, moonlight and surround sound composition created by BAFTA and Ivor Novello award winning composer Dan Jones.
