Cloud Ring is an interactive, illuminated sculpture that emits a soft, internal glow. The form draws inspiration from the historic Beltline Streetcar loop that once encircled the neighborhood, as well as the Chinook arch phenomenon that periodically blankets the sky. Touch sensitive lighting components invite physical and social interaction, and give the sculpture an emotive, perceptual character similar to a living organism.
