eCLOUD by Aaron Koblin

I took a look at Jenny Lee’s Looking Outward post for week 6. It examined the project eCLOUD, which is an every change sculpture of a cloud. I think this project is so cool. The way the cloud changes the degree of brightness based on the weather to emulate a real cloud is so fascinating. I saw a bit in the video of when it was storming, the cloud flashed white briefly to mimic lightning. I would agree with my peer’s thoughts. She and I both agree this project is really cool based on it’s physical appearance and the connection to real weather. One thing that I don’t like very much is that the eCLOUD changes cities every few moments. I feel like the audience would not even realize that the cloud changed city when looking at it for a longer time than minute. I would also love to visit this airport to see it in person, but I wonder if updates could be provided after so many years? Maybe look into changing the shape of the cloud in addition to the brightness of each panel?
