Caitlind r.c. Brown & Wayne Garrett (Calgary, Canada) work with diverse mediums and materials, ranging from artificial light to re-appropriated architectural debris, exploring themes of public interaction, art in unexpected spaces, re-contextualization 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, Prague, and Eindhoven, with an upcoming exhibit scheduled in Singapore (i Light Marina Bay, March 2014).

In 2013/14, Caitlind & Wayne expanded their Celestial Series to include a sun sculpture (SOLAR FLARE) and a moon sculpture (NEW MOON). Caitlind and Wayne have collaborated on films and installations since 2010, although their first unofficial collaborative piece transpired when buildings a tree house during the Leona Drive Project with the Arbour Lake Sghool collective (Toronto, 2009).
