Look beneath the surface

The Buried Moon combines storytelling and current scientific knowledge to search for a mythical moon beneath the lakes. 

The Strange Names Collective, the University of Cumbria and Lakes Culture invite you to the Ambleside campus this summer to find out what lies beneath what we think we know about this World Heritage cultural landscape.  The Buried Moon is a three-part artwork exploring landscape and the cultural history of geology in the Lake District through a performance by Philip Stanier, Penny Newell and Gillian Lees, alongside a photographic exhibition and virtual reality experience by Wayne Burrows and animated by Adam York Gregory which allows viewers to drift below the surface, into the deep interior of the earth. 

The Buried Moon is a partnership project for Lakes Ignite 

Performance: The Buried Moon (20 minute performances on 27 May - 7pm, 29 June 2.30pm and 7pm, 30 June - 2.30pm and 7pm, 1 July -2.30pm and 7pm)

Artworks: The Heart of a Cave (27 May - 31 July)
A series of collage images, inspired by rumours, theories and wild imaginings from beneath the Lake District. 

VR Experience: The Fall through the Earth (27 May - 31 July)
Imagine you had slipped out of the grasp of gravity and matter, that you were free to drift through solid rock, what would you discover?
