Everyday Thunderstorms.

Wednesday, July 2, 2014

I'm convinced I never heard real thunder til I moved to the East Coast. A summer storm here is theatrical and earth-shaking, often blowing in out of nowhere on a clear day. With The Cloud, designer Richard Clarkson has created a portable mini thunderstorm for the indoors - a lamp that comes with speakers and sensors, and conjures a storm in concert with its viewers' motions. Amazing.



More on Richard Clarkson's website, here. Happy Wednesday.

UM. Just asked Trevor if we could get this for our room. HAHAHAHA.

I'm glad to hear the storms are major here. Growing up in the Midwest, we spent our summer nights hovering under front porches waiting for the thunder to boom in our chests. I missed that in CO.

We got hit by a thunder storm really hard a couple of weeks ago... It was horrible. So why would someone build an indoor thunder storm? But it looks kind of awesome...

Certainly a conversation piece. I want one.

Oh man, I miss thunderstorms! I was born in the Midwest, where thunderstorms are amazing! There's nothing like them in California, sadly.

I totally want The Cloud, what a cool idea!

That's very cool. We have thunderstorms on the west coast, but not like that. Thunderstorms in the south are pretty cool, too, especially when the rain is beating on a tin roof.

I love thunder and lightning storms, and am of the save conviction that I did not experience them until I lived in Nashville and DC. I miss them!

I've grown up with epic thunder storms I love them but I'll admit I still jump ever time a really big bang happens - this cloud is pretty spot on, I like how it lights up in different places :)

I love the drama of a good thunderstorm. And that lamp would be great in the right space - just not my little apartment.

I am surprised! I heard thunder just a couple of days ago and lightning would fall in the most intimidatingly beautiful lines :) this project is absolutely mesmerizing! I have a thing for art that recreates clouds and natural phenomena in general.
