A Stunning Art Installation Built With 6000 Bulbs To Resemble A Life-Sized Cloud
By Aqila Xiao Qi, 23 Nov 2015
Inspired by the origins of light and the beautiful night skies of Alberta, Calgary-based creatives Caitlyn R.C. Brown and Wayne Garrett came together to create CLOUD, a spectacular art installation resembling a life-sized cloud built from 6000 incandescent light bulbs and 1500 lbs of steel.
Built in time for the eight-hour Nuit Blanche Calgary exhibition, Brown and Garrett removed the traditional ‘Please Do Not Touch’ rule maintained by galleries, allowing guests to freely linger beneath the raincloud and pull on their chains to power up the bulbs to create an immersive and beautiful experience for both participants and onlookers.
Check out images of the stunning installation that has traveled across the globe to countries like Russia, Israel and Singapore, and find out more about it here.
