Inspired by light, communal art, and cloud-gazing, artists Caitlind r.c. Brown and Wayne Garrett created Cloud, an interactive sculpture composed of around 6,000 new and used light bulbs donated from local homes, businesses, museums, and eco stations. The sculpture stood for a single night in September as part of the Nuit Blanche late-night arts festival in Calgary, Alberta.
