Rocket – as seen at Lichfield & Rochester Cathedrals

A 4 meter high rocket sculpture with lighting and sound (composed music by David Harper) made to represent Saturn 5 which was developed for the Apollo mission to the moon in 1969. 

The rocket is a cultural icon of engineering and innovation, here the artist Peter Walker engages the viewer in a metaphysical dialogue with cultural history and our human capacity for exploration.
