eCLOUD is a dynamic data sculpture designed by Aaron Koblin, Nik Hafermaas and Dan Goods.

The permanent art work, located between gates 22 and 23 at the San Jose International Airport, is made from polycarbonate tiles that can face between transparent and opaque states. The tiles are activated by real-time weather from around the world, so that passers-by will feel as if they were dropped into a city around the world and were effected by it's specific weather conditions. So, if it were windy in Rio de Janeiro, the animations in the installation behave in a way that evokes the wind and direction in that specific city. A separate, dynamic display shows which city the eCLOUD is listening to, it's current real time weather data, and a preview of how the eCLOUD is actually behaving.

Be sure not to miss the images documenting the elaborate design and implementation process.
