Installation: Cloud

Cloud is a large-scale light installation composed of six thousand light bulbs.  The interactive installation invites visitors to pull the cords to turn the lights on and off, causing the cloud to shimmer and flicker as bulbs flip between light and dark. Incredibly, five thousand of the six thousand bulbs are old burnt out bulbs donated to the artists by the public. The idea is to turn trash into treasure by reusing bulbs.
