CLOUD is a large-scale interactive work sculpted from 6,000 incandescent light bulbs. The piece incorporates hundreds of pull-strings to create a simple, bright, and playfully collaborative work. Stand inside and underneath to become part of an impromptu team that animates the sculpture, creating “lightning” within and without. Stand outside the sculpture and witness both the upturned, smiling faces of the collaborators as well as the unpredictable display of distant rain clouds and stormy skies familiar to people everywhere.
The first edition of CLOUD was commissioned for Nuit Blanche Calgary in 2012. A second edition was commissioned by Garage Museum of Contemporary Art for Art Experiment 2013 (Moscow).
CLOUD is a featured installation at WAVE: Light + Water + Sound, an exhibition of cutting-edge works of contemporary public art presented from May 30–June 2, 2019. The free four-night festival features interactive artworks, temporary installations and performances in and around the Blue River Plaza in downtown Breckenridge, transforming the river, bridges and waterfront area into outdoor canvases, stages and exhibition spaces.
Funding for WAVE is generously provided by the Town of Breckenridge and the National Endowment for the Arts, with media support from Mountain Living.
Presented by Breckenridge Creative Arts.
