Interactive Sculpture Made from 6,000 Light Bulbs

Calgary-based artist and filmmaker Caitlind Brown created this wonderful large-scale light installation/sculpture titled ‘Cloud’, exhibited at this year’s Nuit Blanche in Calgary.

Made with more than 5,000 reappropriated domestic light bulbs (only one in every six bulbs actually needs to glow), in addition to compact fluorescent bulbs and chain pull strings, ‘Cloud’ invites viewers to wander through a rain of pull strings switching lights on and off.

When audiences activate the ‘Cloud‘s inner sphere of light bulbs it creates the illusion of lightning on the cloud’s surface.
