For the 2016 festival, the French collaborative duo Michael Martins Afonso and Caroline Escaffre-Faure brought architecture’s universal backdrop down to eye level, floating several large clouds throughout one of the selected courtyards. The project, which they have titled ” Head in the Clouds ,” provides a relaxing dreamland away from the bustling city, inviting attendees to sit or stand within the fluffy orbs.

Although the symbolism of the piece is direct, the installation does provide a meditative area for those to take a step back and think, dream, or scheme amongst the hovering works.
