After hugely successful installations in Derry-Londonderry and Belfast, the recreation of our solar system as a 10km sculpture trail designed by artist and author Oliver Jeffers is coming to Cambridge this summer.

The critically acclaimed Our Place in Space, is part of UNBOXED: Creativity in the UK, and is a unique collaboration across art, science and technology - an epic scale model of the solar system designed by artist and children’s author Oliver Jeffers, incorporating a 10km three-dimensional sculpture trail.

The project also includes an interactive AR app, and major learning and events programmes. Our Place in Space is totally free and open to everyone.

From creating a star to writing a symphony for the universe, inventing a new form of transport, building a Minecraft planet or connecting with space watchers around the globe, Our Place in Space invites participants to consider how we might better share and protect our planet in future and what is the difference between ‘us’ and ‘them’? It brings our solar system down to Earth and sends us soaring into the stars to find new perspectives and reconsider what it means to live life on Earth.
