That is pretty dang nice!
I like the light mounting, I am going to do something similar myself , but my cloud is smaller ( put up in three sections) and the lights will be fastened to the side member.

That is a pretty nice job of putting on the fabric.

How did you hang your cloud and how did you wire the light into it? Do you think this is something I could do in an apartment without too much damage?

Which pair of opposite sides are parallel? Looks like both to me? You sure that's not a rectangle ;)?

I'd be interested to know how you hung your cloud?

I completely forgot I posted this! Never to late to answer questions.
First I placed the cloud on the ground, positioning it underneath where I wanted it to hang! Then I used the plumb line technique to mark anchor holes in the ceiling! Anchored cup hooks into the ceiling. The front is dropped down with S Hooks.

The front and back are parallel! The front is next to the window in the first picture.

I fastened the light to one of the cross beams. I put the fabric on first, then cut a few holes in the fabric for the screws and wire to drop through. Feel free to ask anything! I will try and answer this decade! :D
