Cloud art installation made from lightbulbs

CLOUD is a large-scale interactive art installation by Caitlind Brown for Nuit Blanche Calgary. The project was made using more than 5000 illuminated and burnt out light bulbs.  Viewers were invited to participate in the installation by standing underneath and pulling the metal strings.  This switched the lights on and off and resulted in a flickering electrical cloud.  Photo above by Doug Wong.
