The scheme is divided into four main thematic zones that take visitors on a multisensory journey to uncharted territories, from inside their bodies to outer space. After travelling with an astronaut to the edges of the universe, gallery-goers can immerse themselves in the cycle of water in the rain room, stand at the nucleus of a tornado and experience antigravity. They can learn about the earth’s variety of life forms, from dinosaurs to the microscopic cells that bred creation. In addition to seeing the latest developments in urban agriculture, visitors can actually taste the results. In the making labs, on the other hand, kids can produce their own creations – scenery for a science-fiction movie, perhaps, or a work of art made from living material – while surrounded by contemporary pieces from both local and international artists.
The unique combination of art and science is sewn together in a festival setting, stimulating creativity and drawing inspiration from the greatest minds in Russian’s past and present. Sirius Art & Science Park will also include a planetarium, food court and a large external area complete with outdoor cinema and observatory, which will become a community hub that bustles with activity.
