Constructed from steel, metal, pull strings, burnt out incandescent bulbs, and illuminated compact fluorescent bulbs, CLOUD invites the viewer to wander through a rain of pull strings switching on and off lights. By manipulating the sculpture audiences will activate CLOUD’s inner sphere animating light bulbs and creating the illusion of lightning on the cloud’s surface.
