Cloud installation hovers between surrealism and feedback loop

Craft & Design

“Cloud” by Canadian media artist David Rokeby is a large kinetic installation suspended from the ceiling of the Great Hall in the Ontario Science Center. It’s comprised of 100 sculptural elements arranged in a 10 x 10 grid and is rotated in differing speeds by computer-controlled motors. The effect from the video is wave like patterns of movement.

    Who’s going to be the first one to remake this scaled down under a glass coffee table? Perhaps with a slow changing color lighting system? I would, if I had room for a coffee table in my room!

    Okay, I’ve been to the Ontario Science Center (Centre?), and I did not “get” this installation. Now I understand why… it wasn’t turned on…
