Cloud (of daytime sky at night)

1970 Amsterdam, Netherlands
Coauthors: Jeffrey Shaw, Theo Botschuijver, Sean Wellesley-Miller

Production: Eventstructure Research Group, Amsterdam

A large cloud-shaped and air-inflated structure was suspended from the roof of the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam. At night the image of a daytime sky and clouds was projection-mapped onto its bulbous surface, accompanied by artificial smoke and recorded sounds of the wind and thunder. 

This installation was one of the series proposed by Artificial Landscapes (1969) whereby inflatable structures were transformed into paradoxical objects in and of nature.
