Caitlind Brown, an artist from Calgary, has put together 6,000 new and burnt out light bulbs to create a giant, interactive cloud. The project, which formed part of the Nuit Blanche arts festival, contained metal pull-strings which allowed viewers to turn the light bulbs on and off, creating a flickering sensation similar to that of a storm cloud. Now that’s putting waste to some really good use.
