Absolutely Cultured presents Luminarium, a walk-in sculpture designed by Alan Parkinson of Architects Air that will invite visitors to explore a labyrinth of light and colour.
Luminarium is a family-friendly installation that has a calming effect on adults whilst encouraging children to think, question and explore. Taking inspiration from natural shapes such as soap bubbles, plant formations and organic cells, the interactive sculpture gives visitors the unique opportunity to enjoy a few minutes of mindfulness. Inspired by Islamic, Gothic and Modern architecture, it combines intricate engineering with joyful visual design to create a truly sensory experience.
The 12-sided inflatable structure visiting Pearson Park is Dodecalis. It takes the form of three cavernous domes connected by tunnels and pods. As sunlight filters through coloured fabric, silver surfaces are illuminated and fill the space with gradually changing hues.
Tickets go on sale on Friday 1 July.
Tickets for 30-minute slots from 11am – 5pm are £3 per person. Children under 5 are admitted free of charge.

Situated between Princes Avenue and Beverley Road, Pearson Park is a family-friendly, open space filled with Victorian grandeur. Featuring a children’s play area and a conservatory greenhouse, the park was the first public park in Hull and was established in the 1860s by Zachariah Pearson, then Mayor of Hull.
