Robert Orchardson's new work We are the sky was installed in its permanent home in the Schofield Building at Loughborough University in September 2015.

Robert was selected from amongst fierce competition to develop a new work for the Schofield's atrium space, which acts as the building's reception and the entrance to the Mathematics department. We are the sky is inspired by images of early aviators and scientists, and draws on the pioneering structures of early kites. Each element of the work is suspended in air, allowing them to be viewed from different levels of the building to create multiple perspectives on the work.

Drop by the Schofield Building next time you're nearby to get a look at this amazing new work - a wonderful addition to the University's art collection.

Robert Orchardson (born Glasgow, 1976) lives and works in London. He studied at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design, Dundee, and at Goldsmiths College, University of London.  He has exhibited widely with recent exhibitions in Brussels, Birmingham, London, Dundee, Glasgow and Vancouver.
