conceived by calgary-based artist caitlind brown, her project ‘cloud’, a life-sized interactive light installation engages the public to participate by standing beneath the structure and pulling lights on and off, creating the flickering aesthetic of an electrical cloud. developed using steel, metal pull-strings, and over six-thousand illuminated and burnt light bulbs, the project reimagines waste and implements the excess in an interactive art exbition.

‘cloud’ was part of the nuit blanche all-night contemporary arts festival in calgary, canada.

  • When this popped up on screen I just knew there was going to be some self righteous enviro nonces with a complete lack of perspective – putting the world to rights as if their pc’s delivered this ‘vital’ content via the compost pile at the bottom of the garden.

  • Bourgeoisies, then can you direct that electricity to here please? A 17 year old kid just died at the Operation Theater a week ago cos the lights went out while the surgeons were at it.
