Overview Effect

Date: Fri, 18 Oct 2019 - Sat, 19 Oct 2019

Venue: New Market Square

Overview Effect is a breath-taking outdoor spectacle that celebrates the ambition and technical achievement of the 1969 moon landing. From the surface of the moon, we share the view of the Apollo 11 astronauts and appreciate their shift in understanding about the fragility of the planet we call home. Overview Effect is a psychedelic and atmospheric outdoor projection set to a stunning original soundtrack. It asks us to celebrate what the human race is capable of achieving, and consider the cost of the problems we choose to ignore.
