Michael Benson’s Otherworlds: Visions of our Solar System

PLEASE NOTE: This exhibition will be temporarily closed for minor refurbishment from 10 July - 28 July 2017. 

Embark on a journey to the farthest reaches of the Sun’s planetary domain at Queensland Museum through the stunning photographic exhibition, Michael Benson’s Otherworlds: Visions of our Solar System.

Visitors can discover the intersection of art and science through 64 breathtaking photographic images of our solar system based on scientific data from far-flung robotic spacecraft. The exhibition reveals places of breathtaking, alien beauty combined with an exotic ambient soundscape developed by English musician and composer Brian Eno, the father of ambient music, to accompany the planetary photography. 

JupiterThis stunning exhibition is a showcase of planets that most of us can only dream of visiting, and through Michael Benson’s images visitors can navigate the solar system from the comfort of the museum.

The collection of images has been created from raw data from digital archives of the National Aeronautical and Space Administration (NASA) and European Space Agency (ESA), capturing planetary landscapes as they might look if humans could visit and view them with their own eyes.

Michael Benson’s Otherworlds: Visions of our Solar System is on display as part of the World Science Festival Brisbane, 22-26 March, 2017.
