Mars: War and Peace

About

Experience artist Luke Jerram's famous installation, Mars: War and Peace in the stunning nave of Exeter Cathedral, with sound composition by BAFTA award-winning composer, Dan Jones.

Following Museum of the Moon and Gaia, we are excited to be hosting Luke Jerram's next artwork, Mars: War & Peace, throughout February 2024.

Measuring seven metres in diameter, the artwork features 120dpi detailed NASA imagery* of the Martian surface. At an approximate scale of 1:1 million, each centimetre of the internally lit spherical sculpture represents 10 kilometres of the surface of Mars.

Mars was named by the ancient Romans for their god of war because its reddish colour was reminiscent of blood. Accompanying the Mars sculpture is a newly created sound composition by BAFTA and Ivor Novello award winning composer Dan Jones. Featuring the sounds of seas, deserts and clips from NASA missions to Mars, it also incorporates the sounds of distant bombing and people marching, as if to war.
