‘towards a poetic morphology’ installation by the cloud collective


‘towards a poetic morphology’, a temporary installation by the europe-based artist network the cloud collective, fills a small room with a landscape of letters, together forming robert walser’s poem ‘oppressive light’.

the piece was installed at la fabrique, a former textile printing factory, for the 22nd international poster and graphic design festival of chaumont in france. in the work, a small opening pathway invites visitors to explore the letters and forms, in a windowed room whose ambiance constantly changes with the sunlight and weather outdoors:

‘this arrangement in space– strongly affected by sunlight, time and weather– allows the text to slowly detach itself from its intrinsic meaning and to let form, typography and composition take over. the snowy landscape becomes malleable, thus creating a multitude of meanings for the observer.’
