Fractal Cloud is an interactive virtual reality installation in which a cloud is gradually generated by the movements of visitors who interrupt a beam of light. In doing so, they trigger a generator of fractal forms. The initially simple structure becomes progressively more complex as viewers play and dialogue with the work. If nobody intervenes, the cloud stabilizes. The work then moves from a state of perpetual change to the deeper blue reign of a static order.
