The digital is omnipresent. It shapes our perception of reality, organises our social life, creates new identities and form networks between people beyond borders and cultures. It monitors every detail of our lives. While the internet is often described as a knowledge carrying project, illuminating and educating, the common user has given up on understanding the underlying mechanisms for their digital existence. In his video and lecture performance Cloud Residue, Remin dives deep beneath the surface of ‘The Cloud’, and reveals contexts and ecological consequences of our increased use of ‘big data’.The audience will be guided through an immersive performance in video, light, data and sound.
