Wax Cloud Loop


Basing the piece on the unusual phenomenon of the Morning Glory clouds. “Rolling Clouds” are produced by still unknown reasons. It is thought that they are produced by cold air and humidity from the sea, but the short time it last and the so uncommon situation, make it hard to research about it.

The project is based on the “interest“ they produce (millions of entries are found on the internet, and there are even special trips to try to ride them), and on the “ephemeral” aspect (as you can normally find them only in September and October and only during the morning or evening).

The idea is to have a turning machine that on its way up faces a heat source that makes wax drops fall down to a new grid that it turns over itself and creates a new wax cloud. This new wax cloud faces the same procedure, become a loop.

The installation proposal shows how people are fascinated by ephemeral issues, destroying a cloud to make a new one that follows. The movement imitates the “rolling clouds”, but it is more a lyric about how “man destroys to build, and builds to destroy”, making a destructive loop as on the proposal.

Project proposal wrote on 2010.
