  Architects of Air: "Arboria" on the Drillfield  
(Arts)

Luminarium designed by Alan Parkinson

The monumental and interactive walk-in sculptures of Architects of Air have astounded audiences across the globe. The luminarium offers a dazzling maze of winding paths and soaring domes where Islamic architecture, Archimedean solids, and Gothic cathedrals meld into an inspiring monument to the beauty of light and color and where visitors can happily lose themselves. Built in 2015 Arboria is dedicated to the theme of trees. These combinations of cones and spheres give rise to a brightly luminous tree trunk and branches that reach overhead. The installation awakens all the senses, creating a sense of wonder and enchantment. Visitors are transported and immersed into an amazing world of light and subtle and saturated hues, for a unique sensory experience that brings visual art to a place where you wouldn't expect it. Visitors will hear sounds from the Ecuadorian Cloud Forest Reserve, recorded by musician and soundscape ecologist Alice Eldridge. All children under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult (maximum four children per adult). This event is wheelchair accessible.
