Cloudcuckooland is a visual/verbal conversation involving objects and light that flips between matter and word. Borrowing the title from Stuart Chase's seminal 1938 text The Tyranny of Words, salvaged industrial windows frame an inventory of nonverbal objects that propose the intangible truths of Freedom and Justice.
