Professor Ivica Ico Bukvic and Aki Ishida are excited to announce the public opening of their newest collaborative installation Cloud. The first weekend in October, a constellation of fifty light- and sound-emittingcloudlets that make up the Cloud will fill the central space of Welburn Square in Ballston, Virginia. This networked artwork is an interactive project, built and programmed in community workshops led by the artist team. After it is placed in the square, it will take on a life of its own as the cloudlets communicate with each other and its environment by exchanging messages of light and sound.
