For this year’s Nuit Blanche arts festival in Calgary, artist Caitlind Brown created an interactive display that looks like a giant rain cloud, inviting viewers to control the lighting from beneath. The CLOUD is made up of over 6,000 incandescent light bulbs, over 5,000 of which were cleverly recycled burnt out donations collected through her site. By pulling on the rain strings, users can control the movement of lightning throughout the cloud. The installation was a great success, bringing smiles to the users’ faces as they interacted with its strings, creating a lightning dance for those surrounding the magnificent work.

Amazingly, Caitlind Brown also documented the making of the structure, sharing photos with each step of its construction. See how the whole process came together on her blog incandescent cloud.
