St Peter's Church, South Somercotes,
18 March (4.30 - 8.30pm)
Lumen and the British Science Association present an evening of stargazing and celestially-inspired art on Saturday 18th March, as part of British Science Week 2017.
The British Science Association have commissioned Lumen Studios to create an art installation especially for St Peter’s Church in South Somercotes. Lumen will present an installation representing the constellation of Aries, which will be visible in the West of the night sky on Saturday 18th of March 2017 from 6pm, before appearing to dip below the horizon at 10pm.
Lumen are also keen to highlight the zodiac date for Aries, which begins on 20th March until 19 April. In the creation of this work, Lumen continue to be inspired both by scientific research and by exploring a range of cultural understandings based on visions of the night sky.
