‘Cloud’ is a large-scale interactive sculpture created from 6.000 light bulbs, new and burnt out. Constructed by artist Caitlind Brown and collaborator Wayne Garrett, ‘Cloud’ was on public display for one night only during Calgary’s first Nuit Blanche Festival. As part of the process of creating the sculpture, Brown collected burnt out incandescent light bulbs from local households, businesses, museums, and eco stations. The idea was to create an informal collaboration between the community and the artists, reduce costs, and experiment with the potential of items post-use.
