DATA CLOUDS refers to the (in)visibilities of digital data that, according to time zones, traveling driven by the wind of the networks to unknown destinations. Translated here into illusory correlations, these “clouds” reveal pareidolia composed, not of water particles, but of fragments of lives, coded in digital clouds and stored in 45 million centers all around the world.
Video is created through cross-digital technics and can be projected on HD flat screens, and/or on a large wall in order to create another kind of aesthetic experience. The stereo sound is important in this work because it gives another dimension to the passing clouds. Regardless of the rhythm difference between the two, the superposition of the incomprehensible voices creates an effect of surprise and appears and disappears at times as an echo.
Project selected by the Aesthetica Art Prize 2019 and featured in “Future Now 2019: 100 Contemporary Artists”. Recognizing both innovation and creativity, the Aesthetica Art Prize anthology showcases captivating projects from some of today’s leading artists, both established and emerging, across four categories. The pieces included in this year’s anthology draw on both personal and universal narratives, looking at how we are so connected to the internet and our own personal profiles — along with likes and shares – that we are forgetting how to forget something.
