Opening Night of Cloud Collection / South First Fridays

The opening night of a solo exhibition, The Cloud Collection, by Brooklyn-based artist Karolina Sobecka exploring connections between clouds and information technology. In August 2013, Sobecka launched a weather balloon from the eastern hills of San Jose that floated to an elevation of 55,000 feet. Come see video and photographic documentation of its journey, while exploring projects such as Cloud Machine, a personal device for weather modification, the Cloud Collector, a device for collecting cloud moisture, and CloudServices, a proposal for using the atmospheric clouds and the microorganisms in them as the material for data transfer and storage.
