Inspired by nature I tried to create a piece that accurately mimicked a thundercloud. Much like the organic design movement took inspiration from different aspects of nature. I think the results were successful. At expo, the light fixture was received well by the public! Many comments were made about how realistic the lightning flashes looked.
The final fixture is about 4.5 ft x 2.5 ft. Moving forward with this design, instead of having one singular cloud, I think it would be very cool to convert an entire ceiling of a room into a thundercloud. After completing this project, I do not think this task would be that difficult. One person, an elementary school teacher, said she would love to have something like my cloud in her classroom. Maybe someday I could install a full ceiling thundercloud in a classroom or a home.
