Rekindling Venus

Rekindling Venus is a new work from screen-based installation artist Lynette Wallworth. An immersive full-dome feature developed for planetariums will be launched globally to coincide with the next transit of Venus in June 2012 and as part of the program for the London 2012 Cultural Olympiad.

For Wallworth, the transit of Venus provides a metaphor for the global scientific co-operation that was achieved in the 1700s and which she believes is needed again now to address climate change.
