Santa Ana, CA
Cumulus was a massive, four-ton, 60-foot long sculpture and video installation that employed custom programming and projection mapping. It was a meditative reflection on the 100th anniversary of the Los Angeles Aqueduct. A massive pipeline emerged from one side of the gallery and quickly disappeared into the other. Projected upon it were moving images of atmosphere and landscape, traversing its surface as fluidly as water flows through the aqueduct itself. The site-specific artwork was a culmination of a residency that allowed for multiple site visits, time to talk, and time to travel outside the institution. It turned the water of the aqueduct back into the clouds it came from.
