Interactive Cloud Made of 6,000 Light Bulbs

cloud-1

CLOUD began as a large-scale interactive sculpture created from 6,000 light bulbs by Canadian artists Caitlind r.c. Brown & Wayne Garrett. The piece utilizes everyday domestic light bulbs and pull strings, re-imagining their potential to catalyze collaborative moments and create an experiential environment. As part of the process of building the sculpture, the artists collected burnt out incandescent light bulbs from the surrounding community, forging an informal relationship with non-artists, reducing costs, and asking audiences to reconsider household items in an alternative context. During exhibition, viewers interact with CLOUD, working as a collective to turn the entire sculpture on and off.
