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.
