The general idea is to emulate a moment of being en route, when you witness another person pause to take a cellphone photo of the sky. Less so that clouds could be documented, stored in a digitized drive, or reproduce a similar emotive state when reviewed through the screen. I just like to see it, the diversion from an unpronounced or routine trajectory, where being on-time or fixated in a state of transit is set aside. An instance when someone you have not been introduced to communicates they are having a moment without needing to spell it out. There is not so much to say, as the gesture dictates that we are in the right place, at the right time. The activity is to be immersed in a cloud formation or a particular spectrum of light. As if one were an angel – either about to vanish into thin air, or appearing as though enmeshed in the image. Ambience. Maximalism forever being the terrestrial suggestion. It’s for you, a lucky cloud in the sky.
