Gordon Ferguson, Clouds, 2003
Location: North exterior wall of the parkade at 10045-102 St.
This mural evolved from a collection of photographs of cloud formations. The 35 eight-foot stainless steel plates were laser-cut in a semi-circular format and carefully positioned along the parkade wall to create a pattern of cloud formations. Clouds integrates the forces of nature into the urban landscape.
