Belfast’s Botanic Gardens is set to play host to a new immersive light installation this weekend.
Named ‘BODY’, the installation offers families and children a chance see a dazzling artistic display, as well as gain fascinating insight into our own human biology.

Here’s everything you need to know about the new multi-sensory installation at Botanic Gardens this weekend.
What is it?
BODY is described as “an outdoor immersive journey through six zones relating to different parts of the human body, mixing human biology with light, special effects, sound and fire.”
Using cutting-edge technology to create a deeper understanding of the science of the human form, BODY has been designed to inspire young and curious minds. The installation offers a range of options for educational engagement in STEAM subjects, with BAFTA award winning composer Sandy Nuttgens and Helen Hampton designing a soundscape for each area of the installation.
