ICLOUD

iCloud is an installation that consists of an overhead sculpture, moving light, and sound that addresses issues of digital data archiving in the context of capitalism. The artist is questioning the sustainability and longevity of storing endlessly accumulating data through subscriptions to cloud based services. The installation is a physical interpretation of the iCloud made with non archival materials. The audio repeats the remaining information saved on the artists cloud after the digital storage system failed to archive her data. The artist forces the viewer to be a voyeur to the remnants of previous conversations and implicates both herself and the viewer as inactiveonlookers to the evolution of data archiving.
