About Existence: Life and Beyond
Sorry, but this event has been and gone!
A celebration of life in all its forms, this interactive exhibition will guide you on a fascinating journey to the outer reaches of life as we know it. From the origins of life on Earth, to the horizons of what life could be in the future. This is the story of how life came to be and of humanity’s role in nurturing, protecting and even enhancing it. Existence: Life and Beyond will feature Event Horizon, by renowned artist Jason Hackenwerth - a colossal sculpture descending from above the National Museum of Scotland’s Grand Gallery. Installed over several days by Jason and his team, you'll have the chance to watch the process first-hand as thousands of balloons are woven together to build this intricate structure before its grand unveiling on 6 April.
Event Horizon will be available to view until 22 April. You'll also find two immersive zones of hands-on interactives showcasing real research taking place in Scotland and around the world and two specially-commissioned digital installations from local artists. With assistance from the Science Festival's Youth Consultation Group.
