Carlisle City Of Lights To Return In February

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.

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

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.

Artist Peter Walker and composer David Harper are an artistic collaboration called ‘Luxmuralis’.  Through son-et-lumiere installation and sound art pieces they transform and reinterpret the sense of place and space creatively helping members of the public to take a physical and emotional journey to identify with the subject and message of the artwork.

Time slots from 6.30pm to 9pm each day.

Tickets are £8.50 per adult, £7.50 per child (aged 5-16) and free for under 5s. Tickets are available from www.skiddle.com or from the Carlisle Tourist Information Centre (01228 598596).

City of Lights is brought to you by the Discover Carlisle team (Carlisle City Council) and Luxmuralis in association with Cumbria County Council, Carlisle Cathedral, Tullie House Museum and Art Gallery and English Heritage. It is supported by the UK Government through the UK Shared Prosperity Fund.
