La nube de la Puerta Alcalá, was a temporary site–specific intervention in a public space of Madrid. It was created for the Noche en Blanco´07 (Madrid) and consisted of a real cloud, which was installed in front of the historic monument ‘Puerta de Alcalá’. The cloud was created with the help of a new nebulisation technology and consisted of nothing else but pulverised water particles suspended in mid-air. The installation offered almost a million visitors the possibility, to experience a natural phenomenon in the heart of the city.
