eCLOUD is a dynamic sculpture inspired by the volume and behavior of an idealized cloud. Made from unique polycarbonate tiles that can fade between transparent and opaque states, its patterns are transformed periodically by real time weather from around the world.

This permanent interior installation fills and activates the central atrium space in San Jose International Airport, bringing an experience of weather patterns from international locations to passengers waiting to fly out. The eCLOUD makes sophisticated and innovative use of architectural materials to create an elegant, constantly evolving artwork, drawing on data captured from the natural world to animate large suspended pixels in three dimensions.
