Progress Bar's CLOUD CEILING is a permanent interactive installation made up of 15,000 re-appropriated light bulbs and motion sensors.

Artists Caitlind r.c. Brown and Wayne Garrett’s CLOUD, an incandescent installation made up of 6,000 light bulbs, originally had a short-lived life – it was only on display for six hours at the Nuit Blanche Calgary gallery before being torn down. But Brown and Garrett were able to give their work a permanent home with a commission by Progress Bar in Chicago, to create a whole ceiling based on their CLOUD work. The CLOUD CEILING is over twice the size of the original, requiring 15,000 lights to create the interactive facade, a sea of bulbs that appear to be a lightning-filled cloud.
