Watch the Sky by Rainmaker Artist-in-Residence Hannah Newman
Hannah Newman’s installation invites viewers into a space designed for watching clouds, both natural and digital. Clouds offer a space for daydreams; they are wispy outlines onto which observers can project their expectations and forecasts. Incorporating soft sculpture and gifs, Watch the Sky suggests new ways of appreciating and exploring our digital atmosphere.
