The Cloud

2016 January

The Cloud is an animated projection on the ceiling of the Folger Shakespeare Library’s historic Great Hall, an expansive hallway that extends a full block with two-story ceilings. The projection is seamlessly displayed across the entirety of the ceiling by nine projectors, projecting a 40 minute animated sequence comprised of eight segments. The segments borrow from books, engravings, and woodcuts from the time of Shakespeare, including the works of Shakespeare himself.
