Gaia by Luke Jerram

HULL MINSTER, 10a - 11 King Street, Parish Centre, Hull, HU1 2JJ

10 - 30 Mar 2021

FREE

Family Friendly

Subject to public health restrictions, the installation will be at Hull Minster from 10-30 March 2021.

Strict Covid-19 safety measures will be in place with a limited number of tickets available for each session.

The free tickets will be available from February 2021.

Following the overwhelming success of Luke Jerram’s Museum of the Moon, which saw a record number of visitors to Hull Minster as part of the 2018 Freedom Festival programme, together Freedom Festival and Hull Minster will bring Gaia (Earth) to the city.

Almost a year after the country went into lockdown and the world simultaneously experienced a human health crisis, Jerram’s depiction of the Earth, set to be hosted by Hull Minster, will offer a poignant opportunity for audiences to gaze at our great planet with a renewed respect for nature, shared connections and responsibilities.

Measuring seven metres in diameter and created from 120dpi detailed NASA imagery of the Earth’s surface, the artwork provides the opportunity to see our planet floating in three dimensions.

The installation aims to create a sense of the Overview Effect, first described by author Frank White in 1987, in which common features of the experience for astronauts are a feeling of awe for the planet, a profound understanding of the interconnection of all life and a renewed sense of responsibility for taking care of the environment.
