Emma Smith light installation

Following the Government announcement yesterday, museums and galleries in Cambridge will be closed to the public as part of a period of national/local restrictions. So, with great sadness, we will not be able to reopen as planned on 2 January 2021.

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.
