Project Description

A series of clouds is generated and gently held in place by a machine-like sculpture. The clouds appear, float over the surrounding space and then dissolve into thin air again. This process of delocalization evokes a surreal and altering experience. The installation forms a juxtaposition of a fabricated structure and a natural phenomenon. This supposed contrast between human technology and nature will be explored as a space of unseen possibilities for symbiosis.

The metallic structure of the piece sits on the open, flat surface of the desert. Suddenly, a cloud emerges in the center of this sculptural object. The wind comes into play, shaping the cloud and driving it towards the horizon. From a distance, a series of clouds can be observed floating in the same direction in oddly repetitive patterns – as if they were an encoded message.

Approaching the installation at night gives a whole different impression: patterns of light are moved around by the gusts of wind inside the geometric shapes of the piece. A cloud appears in the middle and follows the direction of the moving light paths. Passing trough the piece, it is being lit up from inside with different colors revealing yet unthought aspects of the fleeting phenomena of nature.
