What do you think love is?
After Richard, the men in my life were just there to hold the coat, to open the door. All the men after Richard were really just company.
— Elizabeth Taylor
The Cloud by Richard Clarkson is an interactive lamp and speaker system, designed to mimic a thundercloud in both appearance and entertainment. Using motion sensors the cloud detects a user’s presence and creates a unique lightning and thunder show dictated by their movement. The system features a powerful speaker system from which the user can stream music via any Bluetooth compatible device. Using color-changing lights the cloud is able to adapt to the desired lighting color and brightness. The cloud also has alternative modes such as a nightlight and music reactive mode.
There was almost an inverse proportion between our lack of money and the abundance of spirit in our crew and cast. Everything was done simply – not only because we didn’t have the budget but also because, artistically, everything needed to be honest, direct, and clear. From the rawness and vulnerability of our actors, to the presence of the natural environment. - James Schamus, producer; P.D. by Judy Becker
