Do you remember this Cloud which was installed for Nuit Blanche Calgary last year? The artist responsible for that luminescent installation – Caitlind r.c. Brown and Wayne Garrett are coming back with their new project – the Cloud Ceiling installed at Progress Bar in Chicago, USA.
Constructed from hand-bent steel, reflective mylar, electronics, motion sensors, LEDs, and 15,000 re-appropriated incandescent light bulbs, the cloud is now a permanent fixture in the bar which opened earlier this week. As bar patrons pass beneath the installation, they trip motion sensors within the CLOUD, creating “lightning” beneath the cumulous surface of light bulbs, mapping their progress through the space and the social “electricity” between people.
So, if you feel under the weather or are having a dim mood, why not shine a light of your life (while having a nice gin&tonic or whatever is it that is to your liking)? Surely, if you are in the neighborhood, you may give it a try 🙂
