The Outer Space at Blue Dot Festival 2017

Date: 7 July 2017 to 9 July 2017

Location: Jodrell Bank Observatory

Client: Blue Dot Festival

Our popular Outer Space area returned to Jodrell Bank's intergalactic festival of discovery with new multi-sensory artworks and installations. For the second year running Walk the Plank were asked by Blue Dot Festival to produce an immersive celestial experience for late night explorers.

This year the unique area chartered new ground, premiering three new commissions; a bespoke fire installation, created by Walk the Plank with Hannelora Johansson, Post-Natural Symphony by Kazimier Productions and TriOnion by Ian Broscomb.

As night fell explorers navigated an atmospheric fiery terrain. Fire installations flickered like solar flares on the sun’s surface and the Circle of Fire will provided a space for late-night stargazing and cosmic reflection.
