This son-et-lumiere will take place inside Carlisle Cathedral, outside of The Fratry within the Cathedral grounds, the Tullie House Museum and Art Gallery gardens and the grounds of Carlisle Castle.

The artwork ‘Science’ is designed to enable people to explore and contemplate the contributions of science and human understanding of the physical world around us.

Sound and light art is projected onto the architectural features of Carlisle Cathedral and Carlisle Castle transforming and enveloping the space. Visitors view individual light and sound art installations digitally and artistically created by artistic collaboration ‘Luxmuralis’ which highlight the architectural features of the space. Viewers are immersed in the soundscapes they hear and walk through the light artworks that are all around them on an explorative journey.

The artwork explores Chemistry and Biology and interprets artistically the scale of molecules cells and DNA as well as exploring the history of science, the contributions of science to humanity, and offers a reflection upon famous scientists past and present.
