Talented artist Michaela Lattanzio's SandCloud installation recreates the celestial aesthetic of the sky with beautiful hexagonal cutouts. The overall piece captures both the natural rhythmic movement of the sky with a fragmented design that is simply stunning to look at.

Departing from traditional landscapes, Lattanzio focuses on recreating realistic images using mosaic patterns, primarily focusing on the use of colored hexagonal squares to make up beautiful imageries. In this piece, showcased in the Italian Bi-Box Art Space, Lattanzio coveres a sandy ground with tiny wooden sticks that individually hold up a blue paper hexagonal square. Together the sticks form waves and ripples, highlighting perhaps the movement in the sky. The 3D nature of the piece offers multiple viewpoints into the installation from various angles.
