Lasers Light Up Old Christ Church In Liverpool With Black Hole Immersive Experience

Back by popular demand, Black Hole – End of Time is an immersive, multimedia laser-filled, mind-popping experience but returns with new visual effects and spectacular projections designed by award winning visual artist, Rocco Helmchen. In addition to 17 lasers, 6 high powered projectors will illuminate the church interior with spellbinding graphics.

The brainchild of lighting designer and musician, Paul Alty, Black Hole – End of Time is a large format immersive spatial light art experience, using spectacular lasers, lighting, projections and special effects, synchronised to a striking, ear-tickling soundtrack. Liverpool has hosted the Moon and the Earth, and now it hosts one of the universe’s most mysterious objects; Black Hole – End of Time is Liverpool’s first and only black hole-based laser show.

Enter space through the new star portal, a projection mapped colonnade of kaleidoscopic stars and galaxies. Walk through the spectacular cosmos and event horizon to reach a real black hole on the other side, floating in space above swirling white clouds and below a sky full of colour-bursting stars and meteors.

Comments from last year’s audience:

“This was a mesmerising evening…The music, the atmosphere all added to a really enthralling spectacle.”

“Amazing…I’d say unreal!”       

“Felt like I was in Blade Runner.”

“One of the most visually striking exhibitions I have ever seen.”

“Wow is all I can say. Absolutely amazing…I stayed for a second show!”

Over three nights, Black Hole – End of Time will again mesmerise and enthral, and if you felt like you were in Blade Runner in 2021, you ain’t seen nothing yet.
