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. Designed 2010, realized in 2014 for the Mazovian Centre of Contemporary Art - Elektrownia in Radom, Poland. 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.
