Art in unusual places – Ely Cathedral

To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the first manned landing on the surface of the moon Ely cathedral had organized a science festival. I made a rapid visit to the UK this weekend and had a chance to take in a concert at the cathedral and see Luke Jarram’s installation work (it would have been very difficult to miss it).  An approximately 1:500,000 scale replica of the moon, lit from the inside was suspended in the nave, just short of the central space under the cathedral’s octagon. The seven meter in diameter inflatable made for a very still but hugely eye-catching intervention in the space.
