In january 2009, Senate House and Old Schools were lit up in a spectacular light show featuring some iconic images from the University’s past and present, as well as some new drawings of two of our most famous alumni, by illustrator and Downing College alumnus Quentin Blake. The show was produced by world-renowned light artist Ross Ashton.
For its 800th Anniversary, the University of Cambridge commissioned a projection artwork to reflect on the myriad achievements and world-changing ideas born within its walls, from the establishment of the fundamentals of physics to the discovery of the structure of DNA; from the transformative thinking of great Cambridge philosophers, poets and artists; to the groundbreaking work of its many Nobel Prize winners.
I was very excited to be involved with this opening event for the year of celebrations surrounding the 800th anniversary of the University of Cambridge. The ideas, concepts and inventions that have flowed from Cambridge have changed the world. I wanted to give the viewer a glimpse of the depth and breadth of this incredible body of work and to show that this same innovative genius will continue to shape our world in the future.
