CLOUD was created by Canadian artists Caitlind r.c. Brown & Wayne Garrett (Calgary). Brown & Garrett work with diverse mediums and materials, ranging from artificial light to re-appropriated architectural waste, exploring themes of public interaction, art in unexpected spaces, re-use of domestic waste, community collaboration, and play. Alongside CLOUD, the duo has worked together on numerous installations and films, in Calgary and beyond. Their CLOUD works have appeared in Calgary, Moscow, Chicago, and Prague, with an upcoming exhibit scheduled in the Netherlands at GLOW Festival (November 9 – 16, 2013). They are presently developing a new temporary public artwork called SOLAR FLARE. Caitlind Brown and Wayne Garrett have collaborated on films and installations since 2010.
