“CLOUD”

This piece is a beautiful interactive collaborative work made from 6,000 new and used light bulbs.  Below are 2 links, one to a video and the other to the artist’s site. Check them out to see more of the making and interaction of the piece. I love it and had to share.

CLOUD is a large-scale interactive sculpture created from 6,000 light bulbs, new and burnt-out. Constructed by Calgary-based artists Caitlind r.c. Brown and Wayne Garrett, CLOUD was on public display for one-night-only during Calgary’s first Nuit Blanche Festival. As part of the process of creating the sculpture, the artists collected burnt out incandescent light bulbs from local households, businesses, museums, and eco stations. The idea was to create an informal collaboration between the community and the artists, reduce costs, and experiment with the potential of items post-use.

A second edition of CLOUD is presently being constructed in Moscow, commissioned by Garage Center for Contemporary Culture. The piece will be on display as part of Art Experiment 2013 from January 2 – 23, 2013.
