2 weeks ago
Due to popular demand, Floating Earth by artist Luke Jerram will remain at Royal Albert Dock Liverpool for one extra weekend.
Due to overwhelming popularity and an outpouring of public demand, the captivating art installation known as “Floating Earth”, crafted by the talented artist Luke Jerram, will continue to grace the prestigious Royal Albert Dock Liverpool for an additional weekend.
This exciting extension allows visitors to immerse themselves in the awe-inspiring presence of the massive 10-meter Earth replica, which proudly stood as the centerpiece of the dock’s grand festivities during the Eurovision Song Contest.
The monumental floating Earth, with its intricately detailed landscape, symbolises the beauty and fragility of our planet, serving as a poignant reminder of humanity and the importance of preserving our natural wonders.
Upon entering the dock, visitors are enveloped by a great sense of wonder and reverence. The massive globe seemingly hovers above the waters, casting a mesmerising reflection that captivates the imagination.
Its imposing presence instills a sense of humility, inviting onlookers to reflect on their place in the universe and the responsibility we share to protect our precious home.
It is an invitation for each visitor to contemplate the beauty of our world, recognize its vulnerability, and nurture a collective responsibility to protect and preserve it for generations to come.
Sean Morrison, estate manager at Royal Albert Dock Liverpool says:
“We’re thrilled to extend the dates for Floating Earth. The response we’ve received from visitors has been incredible, and we want to ensure that as many people as possible have the opportunity to enjoy this breathtaking installation by Luke Jerram”
