Canadian creatives Caitlyn R.C. Brown and Wayne Garrett recently joined forces to create a stunning art installation resembling a life-sized cloud, made from over 6,000 light bulbs and 1,500 pounds of steel.

Ignoring the traditional ‘Please Do Not Touch’ rule that we so often see in art galleries, their artwork – simply called Cloud – is immersive and encourages people to stand underneath it and pull various chains to power up the bulbs and light the night sky.

The stunning installation was first created for the annual arts festival Nuit Blanche in Calgary and proved so popular it travelled across the globe to countries like Russia, Singapore and Israel. Here is a selection of images from Cloud’s travels and make sure you discover more about the artists at incandescentcloud.com.
