Nuit Blanche: Burnt Out Light Bulbs Wanted
- Posted by Caitlind on July 27th, 2012
CALL FOR BURNT OUT INCANDESCENT LIGHT BULBS:
On September 15th, Calgary will be hosting its first Nuit Blanche – an all-night public showcase of contemporary art on the streets of downtown Calgary. As part of Nuit Blanche, local artist Caitlind r.c. Brown is building an 18-foot interactive electrical CLOUD – out of 1000+ light bulbs. Here’s the thing – only one in every six light bulbs actually needs to glow. The rest are purely ornamental. Why waste fresh light bulbs when there are more than enough burnt out bulbs to spare?
In pursuit of inexpensive, re-purposed materials, CLOUD is launching a Light Bulb Drive. Do you have burnt out incandescent bulbs to donate? We'll gladly take 'em off your hands!
BULB COLLECTION DATES: JULY 26TH - AUGUST 28TH, 2012
The sooner the better!
WHERE: Alberta College of Art and Design, 1407 14th Ave NW.
Drop them off in front of the Illingworth Kerr Gallery doors - there should be a box waiting for you.
