About

SKEYE

Have you ever wondered what life is like without political borders, arbitrary divisions and separated people?

In the midst of a turbulent political climate, with military conflicts, political inequalities and fractious international relationships, including Brexit, it has never been more important therefore to focus on our similarities and not our differences. Our vision is to unite people across a fragmented political world, bringing them together under the sky we share.

 Is it even possible to make this vision real? 

Well, we believe it is within reach. SKEYE will be a free public art installation taking place in London in December, where we will showcase live projections of the sky from around the world and frame them under one ceiling. We are asking you to help us build the pavilion that will house this unique, immersive experience where people from all walks of life can stop for a moment, lay down and look up at a sky from another country to appreciate its beauty. 

We are funding for our very first event in London as it is the capital city of the U.K. and as such attracts a wide variety of people from different cultures and backgrounds who we want to reach. 

This is just the beginning, once this event is funded we hope to take Skeye to other cities in the U.K. and eventually tour it around the world!

Who is SKEYE going to be made for?

  • City dwellers wanting to connect with the community around them as well as their surrounding environment. 
  • People living away from their home countries for various reasons (immigrants, students, refugees etc) wanting to look back at something reminding them of home or to simply connect with others under shared skies. 
  • Families who want to enjoy a unique experience with each other where they can think and reflect in a meaningful way.
  • Creative people interested in art outside the conventional spaces of art galleries or museums. 

If you fall into any of the categories above, SKEYE is designed for you so please help us to make it happen!

THE TEAM

Team
Team

Our team is made up of an international collective of artists and designers based in Glasgow and London. We do not believe in any borders, no matter if they are caused by politics, geography, language, culture or anything else, which we have proved by making SKEYE happen - having in our team 8 individuals from 8 different countries. And we want more! 

We wish to make our team even more open and diverse by collaborating with other artists, filmmakers and communities from all around the world through an open call, giving them an opportunity to show the beauty of the sky captured from their locations.

Thank you so much for your support, we wouldn’t be able to do this without you so let’s make world a better place together and please help us spread the word!

Also, remember to look up at the sky - it is one and the same for all of us to enjoy, borders which are dividing us are only underneath, on the political surface...

Risks and challenges

The project, although well thought through, is still at the conceptual stage. Realising it will be a difficult process but as artists and designers with a range of collected knowledge, we believe we have the capacity, resources and connections which make us confident it will become a reality.

Particular challenges identified will include finding a good location that is within our budget, which we hope to avoid by contacting local communities and working in partnership with them. Health and safety is of paramount priority, and so we will work with engineers to ensure the construction is sound and compliant with all relevant regulations.

Another big challenge will be to gather a consistent live feed from around the world but we hope to solve this by having a slight delay in the broadcast.
