As part of a collaborative effort between Richard Clarkson Studio and Oscar de la Hera for a presentation of a major record label, Oscar de la Hera enhanced version 6 of The Cloud in the role of Creative Technologist. This collaboration included the restructuring of the Cloud’s system software and hardware architecture as well as the addition of several functions, including Oscar de la Hera’s music-reactive modes.
The Cloud is an Arduino-controlled, motion-triggered lightning & thunder performance, as well as a music-activated visualizing speaker. As an interactive lamp and speaker system designed to mimic a thundercloud in appearance, The Cloud employs embedded motion sensors to create unique lightning and thunder shows while providing entertainment value and inspiring awe.
