Mars

Mars

A close encounter with the red planet.

This large scale installation, created by UK artist Luke Jerram, allows us to view Mars from the air, as though we are a satellite mapping and studying the surface in perfect detail. Every valley, crater, volcano and mountain is laid bare for us to inspect.

Measuring seven metres in diameter, the artwork features detailed NASA imagery of the Martian surface. The installation is a fusion of Mars imagery, light and surround sound.

Be transported to this vast desert wasteland and visit Mars, the final in a series of three awe-inspiring large-scale installations at West Village.

Mars tugs at the human imagination like no other planet. With a force mightier than gravity, it attracts the eye to the shimmering red presence in the clear night sky.
