The CLOUD art installation is a project founded in recycling that's object was to make a simulated cloud out of upcycled lightbulbs. The sculpture features dozens of white incandescent bulbs strung together to form the shape of an overhead fluffy cloud that viewers could stand under and experience.

The sculpture offers an unconventional look at the way the Earth's atmosphere functions while allowing consumers to interact with the project. The sculpture is made from dozens of stringed lights that range in height and each featuring a pull cord attached to the light. Viewers can pull on the cords to turn the lights on and off, creating an ambient glow both inside and outside the sculpture that is similar to a cloud during a thunderstorm.
