Cloud Spa (Faux Mo) was a pool of real cloud, installed underground in the deepest depths of Faux Mo 2016. A retro-futuristic spa environment, the only source of light in the room were blue and aqua LEDs, installed at cloud level to illuminate the abyss. Accessed via a wooden ladder and circular entrance the internal space was modelled to operate somewhere between a 70's conversation pit, theatre in-the-round, and communal bath house. The cloud was charged with ions, promoting feelings of well-being, and scented to encourage astral travel. A space for discussion and contemplation, rejuvenation and relaxation; a respite in the three days of madness that is Faux Mo.
