I Live Under Your Sky Too is a massive (32-feet wide) installation by artist Shilpa Gupta, erected by the sea on Carter Road in Bandra, Mumbai.
The installation features the text “I live under your sky too” written in three languages — English, Hindi and Urdu — using LED lights with the individual words intermixed. The lights go on and off, highlighting the sentence in each language alternately.
The selection of languages will change with the location of the project. As it tours the country, local languages will be incorporated into the artwork.
In Japan a version with Japanese, Urdu, and English was produced by and shown at the 21st Century Museum. And in China a version exists in English, Mandarin and Xiao Er Jing, the Islamic script of Western China. A New York collaboration with the Art Production Fund and Creative India is also in the offing.
