Buckingham Palace, London, 2017

Ruth Ur was commissioned by Buckingham Palace to develop ideas for a reception, hosted by HM The Queen, to launch the UK India Year of Culture. Ruth came up with the idea to illuminate the facade with a work of art. She invited all-female, UK/India based design Studio Carrom to develop an image to celebrate the unique relationship between the two countries. This was the first-ever art projection covering the entire facade of the palace. It was a complex commission both because of the technical requirements, but also because of political sensitivities.
