Jumps Forming a Cloud is a kinetic installation where the action in a transparent box is projected onto the wall. The projected shadow image is enlarged to 3 by 5 meters. Inside the box styrofoam chips whirl in the airflow of a fan, gaining speed until the friction causes electrostatic loading in the chips, causing them to stick together and pause. When pausing, the single chips tremble on the sides of the box until the action starts over again.
