Bernal Heights Library “Story Cloud” 2015

“Story Cloud” is a cloud form created by the overlapping of wires to evoke connectivity. The cloud hovers at the top of the Bernal Library wall overlooking the playground and can be seen from the ground and from a distance. It is a place to tell the story of the neighborhood, conceptually and visually integrating with the site, architecture, playground and functions of the library.  This form also references the digital “Cloud” holding information and linking together old and new ways of storing and accessing information.  The cloud, fabricated out of glass mosaic, digitally designed and produced to have a pixilated look. Ceramic tile inlaid into this composition holds the pictures collected by the community.
