CLOUD is a large-scale interactive work sculpted from 6,000 everyday domestic light bulbs by Canadian artists Caitlind r.c. Brown and Wayne Garrett. 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.

Based in Calgary, Brown and Garrett combine divergent aesthetics and industrial methods to create transformative public sculptures and installations. They use mass-produced objects to reference the idea of a city as an immeasurable quantity of materials, people, and situations. Their previous works have appeared internationally in Minneapolis, Moscow, Istanbul, and Seoul, and at over 15 Festivals of Light throughout Europe and Asia.

Presented in partnership with Artengine and the Alberta College of Art and Design.
