The fast-paced modern urban social lifestyle not only brings us convenience but also a huge amount of stress and anxiety. It may come from work, family, or society, etc. Under the environment of the crazy pursuit of efficiency, employees in the workplace will have a sense of anxiety and insecurity, which will bring a greater sense of powerlessness. Society is becoming more and more McDonaldization, as George Ritzer said. Meanwhile, at Emory University, Sharon Bergquist pointed out in the research that excessive stress will damage our immune system and bring some corresponding health problems. People usually use the word 'heavy' to describe stress, but could we make ourselves temporarily forget about it, space out ourselves. Or maybe we could escape it in some artistic way. 'A Nomadic Cloud' is a temporary street-based installation aim to reduce people's daily stress. It will mainly present it in an inflatable cloud form, which shows a strong contrast by combining the heavy daily stress and the fluffy air-feel freedom. Meanwhile by linking the new form of digital lighting technology, and finally display it in a cosmopolitan area all over the world as a nomadic contemporary street installation.
