The eCLOUD is a 108-foot long sculpture located inside the San Jose International Airport between gates 22 and 23. The large interactive installation is made out of of transparent polycarbonated tiles that hang at different length from the ceiling. From afar, it looks like a pixelated cloud just floating in the middle of the room. Some of the tiles are controlled by circuit boards so it fades in and out of opacity.

The visual patterns of the eCLOUD changes every 20 seconds to reflect the real-time weather forecast from around the world. The permanent public artwork was designed by Dan Goods, Nik Hafermaas, and Aaron Koblin who won the city of San Jose’s Public Art Program among over 100 other applicants.
