This exhibition is now in our archive.

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 project was 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 was launched with a special event as part of Twilight at the Museums.
