Emma Smith light installation

(Tuesday) (Sunday)

Consisting of two works, one outside and one inside the Museum, this light installation has been created by Cambridge artist, Emma Smith, following a programme of workshops with local groups over 2018.

The new work called We takes its inspiration from the proposal by Jean-Luc Nancy that “we are” - that we exist through relationship, coupled with a symbolic play on the letters used to denote electricity from which this work is made.

The work inside the Museum will be accessible during normal opening hours. The work outside the Museum will be lit up from 10am-10pm.

The project has been developed with support from a Cambridge City Council public art grant, ARM, the Learning Department at the Fitzwilliam Museum, the e-Luminate Studio and Cambridge Live, and and will be launched with a special event as part of Twilight at the Museum.
