#9 MARS | Light installation

Luke Jerram, England

Flight booked? We offer you a perfect view of the red planet beforehand. After the Moon and the Earth, we now present Mars. In a ratio of one to one million, you can take a look at our neighbouring planet. Every crater, volcano or mountain is recognisable. A centimetre here, is 10 kilometres there.

British artist Luke Jerram works in a multidisciplinary way, creating sculptures, installations and live artworks. Jerram inspires people worldwide with art projects that inspire people. With his planet, the artist creates an awareness for the universe and the finiteness of existence.

Playing time: from dusk till 10 pm

Location: Lichtburg | Kettwiger Straße
