The Cloud (2008) is an interactive public sculpture that responds to human interaction. It can display graphics, animation and video on its three-dimensional surface. It expresses context awareness using hundreds of sensors and over 15,000 individually addressable optical fibers and respond to the audience by visual or audio output. Constructed of carbon glass, the Cloud encourages visitors to touch and interact with information in new ways, manifesting emotions and behavior through sound and a dichotomy of luminescence and darkness.
The Cloud is developed at the MIT Mobile Experience Lab and commissioned by Pitti Immagine to be installed at Fortezza da Basso, Florence.
