Oklahoma Contemporary Arts Center will reflect, refract and rearrange the skyline of downtown Oklahoma City this fall with Tomàs Saraceno’s Cloud City. The large-scale art installation will open Sept. 8 at Campbell Art Park, adjacent to the site of our planned art campus at NW 11th and Broadway.
Visitors to Cloud City can walk inside what Saraceno calls “a utopian city in the sky.” Made of steel and acrylic, the structure is both transparent and reflective, so that grass may appear overhead and the sky is reflected onto the ground. The 16 interconnected modules – each the size of a small room – draw shapes from natural forms, including bubbles, clouds, universes, bacteria, foam and animals’ neural communication networks.
