In the Cloud(s)
video 1:14 min

The metaphorical language that is used to describe the cloud, starting with the word ‘the cloud’ itself, hides aspects of this very real, material and political entity. In the Cloud(s) brings the viewer inside this projected idea of the cloud, where serene imagery is contrasted by harhs abstract sounds. The cloud's aspects, such as it's energy use, cloud organised protests disrupted by internet shutdown and the military origin of the cloud's infrastructure, are hinted at, yet never fully disclosed.
