Mia Pearlman - Cloudscapes MAELSTROM is a giant multilevel mobile, 12 feet in diameter and 11 feet high, with 6 independently rotating (360°) layers of cut paper. An upside-down whirlpool, it echoes both the East River currents and the cloud formations visible through the windows. MAELSTROM utilizes the actual internal weather system of Smack Mellon to generate its movement, air currents produced by the rotation of four ceiling fans and hot air blown by the heating system. On a deeper level, this work evokes the inevitable reminder of the nearby skyline: 9/11. Unknown forces, much bigger than us, beyond our control.
