Ephemeral and porous, yet precise and solid, LETTER CLOUD is a suspended kinetic artwork composed of hundreds of aluminum letters from different alphabets systematically hung from a network of metal rods and cables. The volume is simultaneously an abstract mass, a direct reference to printed matter and a data visualization of community demographics.
