We are all Under the Same Sky

An installation from Ruth Proctor

We are all Under the Same Sky is an artwork by Ruth Proctor created especially for the University of Cambridge Primary School. The work describes the idea that we are all under the same sky, no matter where we are on earth.

Ruth worked closely with the designers of the school, Marks Barfield Architects, to come up with her final idea.  The artwork is embedded into the fabric of the building, utilising the glass cloister circling the interior courtyard of the school as its canvas.  Each glass panel is imprinted with an image of the sky taken from locations around the globe.  Expanding on Ruth’s distinctive artistic practice of using found and sourced elements to form her artworks, the images were taken by people living in each region. Under the main entrance to the courtyard the glass is deliberately left clear so school users can be under their own sky in Cambridge.

We are all Under the Same Sky is the first permanent artwork for the North West Cambridge Development, created especially for the children who will attend the University of Cambridge Primary School –  the first inhabitants of this new community.

This art commission is part of the North West Cambridge Development art programme which is curated and managed by the Contemporary Art Society and InSite Arts. You can read more about it here: http://www.nwcambridgeart.com/
