Cloud by Caitlind r.c. Brown and Wayne Garrett
Six thousand new and burnt out light bulbs were used to form a colossal installation that engaged and amused its viewers.
‘Enticed by this simple interaction, audiences were invited to step beneath the cloud and play – at first drawn towards the cloud by curiosity, and later competing to collectively turn on and off the entire cloud at once,’ Brown says.
Brown hosted a ‘light bulb drive’ and collected bulbs from various donators: businesses, museums, arenas, private homes and recycling stations. The concept was not only eco-friendly, it sought to create a collaboration between the local community and artists.
Cloud was realized by Brown with musician, machinist and artist Wayne Garrett.
