CLOUD is a large-scale interactive installation by Caitlind r.c. Brown for Nuit Blanche Calgary. Created from steel, metal pull-strings, and 5,000+ light bulbs (both illuminated and burnt out) CLOUD asks the viewer to participate by experiencing the work first hand – standing beneath the structure and pulling lights on and off, creating the flickering aesthetic of an electrical cloud.
What makes the CLOUD installation so special is that it has intrinsic interactive qualities. Viewers are able to tug on the strings dangling below causing the lights to flicker on and off, which gives the cloud real-world characteristics. incandescentcloud.wordpress.com
