The 108ft-long eCloud is a cumulous-like sculpture made out of polycarbonate tiles and 100 custom designed circuit boards that control the liquid crystal pixels. Fading in and out of opacity, the eCloud’s ever-shifting pattern takes its cue from real time weather data from around the world. It is designed by Dan Goods, Nik Hafermaas and Aaron Koblin who responded to a 2007 public art call, and is installed between gates 22 and 23 at the San Jose International Airport.
