The Cloud

Overview 

My design incorporates my lighting skills alongside my other passion, art. I chose to use an RC4 wireless dimmer to help continue the illusion of a floating cloud, and also to challenge myself to learn a piece of technology that is new to me. I also have an interest in painting.

 

I mostly work intuitively creating abstract images or drawing inspiration from photographs that I have taken.

 

About the cloud

 

The inspiration for the cloud stems from my younger brother, who painted a picture of a smiley cloud as a gift to me for Christmas. It’s a quirky little cloud and it makes me smile and feel connected to home. The cloud is a personal representation of many things: my family connection, humour, togetherness, and even nostalgia of my favourite childhood show; the Care Bears. The string creates a safe space for the cloud, along with the calming paintings.
