Radom Cumulus
 

Designed 2010, real­ized in 2014  for the Mazovian Centre of Contem­po­rary Art - Elek­trownia in Radom, Poland. A three-dimen­sional light object made of 19 layers of curved neon contours, stacked hori­zon­tally on top of each other. The contours form a styl­ized cumulus cloud that rests on the very edge of the roof above the entrance of the new built museum. The neon cloud measures 300 x 210 x 160 cm.

The hori­zontal neon contours are direct sculp­tural repre­sen­ta­tions of drawn hatch­ings, as seen in draw­ings of clouds on medieval maps: Drawing, object and light instal­la­tion combine so that the trans­formed drawing of a cloud, here as a real and illu­mi­nated object, accen­tu­ates the urban space. Clouds are used as metaphors for the after­life, for wander­lust, infinity and freedom of thought— for long­ings in general.
