Light Bulb Cloud by Caitlind Brown. Interactive Cloud Installation at Nuit Blanche Festival

It will go out, then it will go out, then it will flare up again and will flicker with lights … So original at the festival of contemporary art Nuit blanche, which took place in Canada, presented herself by the artist Caitlind Brownentertaining everyone present interactive installation Cloud… This "Cloud" of hers blinked, flickered and sparkled, because it consists entirely of the most ordinary glass bulbs. A huge "mushroom" in the form of a cloud hovered over the site of the Nuit Blanche festival. High enough so as not to interfere with visitors to freely walk around the pavilion, but also low enough so that everyone can reach with their hand to one of the shiny sparkling "streams of water" falling on the heads of passers-by. It would seem that there is a cloud with rain, but something is missing to complete the picture. Lightning, perhaps? Well, you just have to pull one of the "trickles" …

Kaitlind Brown constructed her interactive installation Cloud, which could occupy a whole group of adults for some time, from several thousand glass "Ilyich lamps". Her personal contribution to the art project is 1000 usable, working light bulbs, and about 5000 burned out, for the number, she was brought by fans of non-traditional contemporary art who want to feel "in the subject", to be involved in writing one of the pages of the history of this very art. The artist turned this mountain of glass into a thundercloud (Cloud), joining forces with the artist Wayne Garrett (Wayne Garrett).

And so that this cloud really was thunderstorm, the creative team gave it the opportunity to sparkle, like from lightning strikes. For this, “jets of water” were needed in the form of thin silvery chains hanging down and forming the impression that the rain is really pouring out of a bucket, and the weather is completely flightless. As soon as you pull on the chain, a part of the cloud instantly flares up and goes out, as if this movement turned on a powerful searchlight inside it. This is how visitors entertained themselves, pulling the chains and forcing the cloud to illuminate the surroundings again and again with short blinding flashes. You can see this interactive installation and other art projects on the website of the Nuit Blanche Contemporary Art Festival in Calgary.
