Starting this Friday, the skies of Detroit will be transformed into a "transient light environment" by the artist studio Miniaforms.
Memory Cloud: Detroit is based on the idea of smoke signals. The thoughts, memories, stories and personal aspirations of Detroit citizens will be sent out into the city as ephemeral clouds stamped with an individual thought. The purpose is to further the dialogue of citizens about their city and environment in a new and unique manner.
Miniaforms is responsible for the Memory Cloud: London (pictured) that took over Trafalgar Square in 2008. They have made the jump across the Atlantic to bring their "virtual ink" project to Detroit. As we learned when we were making Detroit Lives, every Detroit resident has opinions about their city and they don't hesitate to share them. This interactive space will be an exciting exploration of the future of Detroit.
