Fluffy Sculpture Network Reinvisions Cloud Communication
Cloud computing becomes tangible with these dream-like Whispering Clouds
New social technologies help you link up with other people in your city, but what about connecting with the environment? Whispering Clouds is a set of digital clouds that light up and hang over a city, displaying messages and encouraging people to interact with each other and their physical surroundings. The clouds encourage people to play within the urban environment and create new ways of communicating in public spaces.
The sculptures will be suspended between buildings or set in open public spaces, where they can receive and display text messages from passersby. They are the physical manifestations of the digital ‘cloud,’ and they repurpose digital communications in a creative, interactive way.
