Out of this world art installation comes to WMC

June 20, 2019 by

Installation artist Luke Jerram’s incredible touring artwork, Gaia, will be the centrepiece of a six-week celebration of planet Earth at Wales Millennium Centre this summer.

Measuring a staggering seven metres in diameter, Gaia features detailed NASA imagery of the Earth’s surface floating in 3D, giving visitors an astronaut’s view of our incredible planet. It will be free to see inside the Centre’s Glanfa foyer from Saturday 20th July 2019.

Other FREE family activities in the Centre’s Summer of Love include:
Sustainability workshops and community performances
An opportunity to toast the planet on the Centre’s new sun-filled terrace
Explore the world in the Virtual Reality arcade

The Gaia sculpture is 1.8 million times smaller than Earth, and each centimetre of the internally lit sculpture represents 18km of the Earth’s surface.

Gaia was created in partnership with the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC), Bluedot and the UK Association for Science and Discovery Centres.

Gaia will be at Wales Millennium Centre 20 July – 1 September 2019
