multi-disciplinary artist and designer dan corson pays homage to the cloud in his installation at amazon’s brazil building in seattle, washington. called ‘nebulous’ the site-specific piece takes form as two large ‘clouds’ made of electronically controlled switch-glass, semi-transparent glass discs and LED fixtures. corson ties in two distinct concepts to the work, dealing with seattle’s notoriously temperamental weather patterns and digital storage. the intricacy of these systems eludes most, save for a few obvious exceptions, yet ‘clouds’ transport and store things all around us: both physically and virtually. simulated shadows of embedded LEDs are placed below the ‘nebulous’.
