Gaia Viewing


The Well
12th June 2019 15:30 - 18:00

Gaia is a huge, seven-metre replica of the earth. You can see the artwork for free at Liverpool Cathedral from Saturday 25 May to Sunday 23 June. Viewing times vary.


Gaia, meaning the personification of the earth, is a huge, seven-metre replica of the earth created by renowned artist Luke Jerram.

One of the key pieces in the Changing Tides creative programme, Gaia features 120dpi detailed NASA imagery of the earth's surface and is an opportunity to see our planet (to scale) floating above your head in Liverpool Cathedral.

The 3D installation will rotate once every four minutes, 360 times faster than our real planet. During certain times of the day, you’ll be able to experience Gaia with a specially made surround sound composition by BAFTA award-winning composer Dan Jones.

You can see the artwork, which is part of the River Festival 2019, for free at Liverpool Cathedral from Saturday 25 May - Sunday 23 June. Take a look through the information below to plan your visit. Viewing times vary while Gaia is in place, you can find the full viewing timetable here.
