cumulus

cumulus looks like a cloud in the sky. It is meant to provide a calming experience. The simple and regular shape of the hollow body is covered with elastic fabric. The piece changes its form if the user moves inside. Along the edges, contours navigate vertically towards an oculus that permits light and fresh air. Inside, it feels like being marooned. Through the enclosing surface you can only see the shadows of what exists outside and its materiality distorts sounds to the extent that they aren’t clear enough to perceive their origin. At night, three suspended lights provide an alternative appearance as silhouettes are created.
