daphnel-Looking Outwards-09

I chose to discuss Jiaxin Wen’s Looking Outwards post from Week 4. The work she chose was a Cloud Piano created by David Brown in 2014. I found this piece of work particularly interesting for relatively similar reasons to the ones she wrote. The Cloud Piano plays piano pieces based on cloud movement. I think that although a programmed machine playing a piano may not have as much emotion and excitement as would if a real person was playing it, the art of it is still beautiful. I also liked how the creator combined an everyday aspect of nature with a form of music. Since I tend to find the movement of clouds intriguing at times when I look at them, I admire the fact that there are people out there that may have the same feelings and me but have more of a capability to make something out of that feeling.
