Paper Cloud is an installation of 140 unique paper lights. The project was initially created as a temporary installation for the 2017 AIA San Antonio Beaux Arts Ball at the Light Building in San Antonio, TX. It was a collaborative endeavor, constructed by more than 70 individuals. Over the course of eight workshops, more than 800 person hours went into its construction and installation.
The project is coordinated and executed by Stuart Allen and Cade Bradshaw (Bridge Projects).
The second of two trips funded by a travel grant from the Peter S. Reed Foundation in New York, Allen traveled to Sumpango, Guatemala in the fall of 2013 to witness and photograph the remarkable Barriletes Gigantes. These enormous kites, flown on the Day of the Dead, are perceived as direct links to ancestors’ spirits.

This is a great event and its gets bigger and better every year. My contribution this time around was an arrangement of about 2000 sticks of white chalk, laid down on top of a field of blue contractors chalk. Special thanks to John Keedy for his assistance!
