Inspired by the evolution in technology, multi-disciplinary artist and designer Dan Corson has created a cloud-like installation that floats over Amazon’s Brazil building in Seattle. Titled “Nebulous”, the site-specific installation consists of two large cloud forms made of electronically controlled switch-glass, semi-transparent glass discs and LED fixtures.
“Seattle is known for its inclement weather and computer innovation. The climate is changing, both environmentally and technologically. We are currently shifting from our analog hard copy world and local computer storage to “cloud-based” systems. The intricacy of these systems eludes most software users and yet clouds of radio waves constantly transport masses of information all around us.” Dan Corson explains
Neither fully transparent nor fully opaque, these “low res” clouds have select glass discs that shift between levels of opacity in a digital dance resembling old school calculating computers or perhaps pulsing lightning within clouds on a stormy night.
