The title Urania refers to the mythological deity Uranus, who was believed to be the ruler of the skies and all the changes up there. It is a device for effecting atmospheric changes. It allows participants to control the cloud density in the sky. When they blow into long pipes, clouds can either be created or dispersed from the sky. Due to the “immateriality” of matter (clouds-wind) in this interactive installation, the digital medium serves as an ideal surrogate for the gassy, airy state of clouds and breath.
