The Cloud is an interactive sculpture that incorporates LED light tubes inside a circular geometric form also know as a torus. The lighting element is activated by the viewers
as they interrupt the infrared sensors with their hands or bodies via a control console. The torus itself is suspended overhead like a cloud. The lights, flash in synchronicity to the viewers interactions, reference lightning bolts within the cloud and serve as illumination for the area.
This work serves as a prototype to test the electrical and lighting systems for an interactive light installation that could be designed for public or private spaces.
I am the sole entity; designer, engineer, fabricator.
This work has been part of several temporary sculpture exhibitions including Sound and Vision (part of the Atlanta Film Festival) and Art on the Atlanta Beltline 2015.

[ manifesto ]
Art matters. Attention to the details of our environment leads to love of place, which brings us to take responsibility for the spaces where we live and work. And by extension, the people with whom we live and work. And by extension, to our local communities, our cities, our nations, and our world.
We champion the role of artists in our society. We need artists to provide us with inspiration, creativity, and imagination, and to help us envision a better world.
Architects and designers know that remarkable design can change everything. They connect the dots across disciplines, collaborating with artists to make the world a more beautiful place. They are the ultimate patrons of the arts.
In the process, design professionals promote imagination and creativity, and through their commissions, make original art integral to and accessible in people's lives.
Art in our public and private spaces helps us fight ordinary buildings, ordinary streets, ordinary cities. We celebrate the extraordinary.
The architecture of our buildings and the design of our interiors affect our happiness and well-being. Each of us deserves a daily dose of inspiration.
