Video // Lundahl & Seitl’s ‘Unknown Cloud On Its Way to…’

Video by MONA, filmed by Peter Cairns, edited by Dylan Gephart, text and voice-over by Katharine Doyle // Sep. 19, 2017

The Cloud is based on the idea of humanity’s ability to communicate in large groups and over great distances. Linked by a shared experience and trust in the other participants, the cloud can only exist if we let ourselves believe in it. ‘Unknown Cloud Caretaker’, an AI smartphone app, was created by artist duo Lundahl & Seitl to foresee the movements of an unknown electromagnetic cloud. From September 20th until October 6th, the cloud will be passing over both Stockholm and Bangalore, India simultaneously.

Berlin Art Link Productions compiled documentation of the Cloud’s recent appearance on Tempelhofer Feld in Berlin, earlier this summer, as part of Berliner Festspiele‘s ‘Limits of Knowing’ exhibition. Contributor Katharine Doyle, who covered the Cloud’s appearance at Tempelhof in July, wrote an accompanying text for this video.
