CLOUD lighting installation

CLOUD sculpture installation at Nuit Blanche Gallery

Taking time off from various projects, including ish and chi, has been nice but I have missed writing. I needed to recharge before the new college semester resumes because these next few months will be my last and the most stressful! So I have been conserving my energy and now I have a heap of it to unleash onto you, you have been warned! Let's get back into it...


CLOUD CEILING installation at Progress Bar

Maybe you have seen the CLOUD project? It is the creative idea of artists Wayne Garret & Caitlind r.c. Brown who suspended 5000 burnt-out incandescent light bulbs in the shape of a cloud and illuminated the bulbs at the pull of a string with spectacular results! The team behind this temporary installation have now created a permanent cloud installation called the CLOUD CEILING at the Progress Bar in Chicago.

The installation consists of 15,000 burnt-out light bulbs, hand-bent steel, reflective mylar, electronics, motion sensors and LEDs. Combined, and with a stack of vision, the team have created an installation which responds to the movements of patrons beneath it by tripping motion sensors that createa a lightning effect. The designers describe the effect as "mapping their progress through the space and the social "electricity" between people."
The Progress Bar is due for its grand opening next week. If you are in the area maybe you might like to pop in? If you do, let me know!
