Discovery is a spectacular immersive journey for people to walk through and explore the Cathedral in a new light.  It invites you to fully immerse yourself in the artwork, and consider what humans have achieved in our place in the world. 

The installation will give you the opportunity to ponder our relationship with the planet Earth and beyond.  Installations of sound and light art that will take you on a journey through space, see galaxies emerge above you and to explore humanities ambition to adventure beyond. 

Visitors have the chance to see original footage of the rocket launch, explore the creation story and the Big Bang within the sacred space, then view the final image of Earth as if looking back from space under a galaxy of stars. 

Other elements of Discovery are designed to enable people to explore and contemplate the contributions of science and human understanding of the physical world around us. 

The artwork will explore chemistry and biology and interpret artistically the scale of molecules cells and DNA as well as exploring the history of science and its contributions to humanity, while reflecting upon famous scientists past and present.

The architectural beauty of Chester Cathedral will be exposed and enhanced by the artwork projected throughout as you walk through the light artworks and installations.
