A film designed to play.
Clouds is a documentary in a video game environment.
The creators filmed interviews with artists, designers, and critics at the vanguard of digital art and emerging technologies, using a new 3D video format designed to be played, rather than viewed.
The final film will take the form of an application that begins when you input a question, and segues through the collected interviews like an organic conversation.
A Kickstarter funding project to create an interactive documentary of contemporary computer artists:
Over the last year we have captured interviews with over 30 new media artists, curators, designers, and critics, using a new 3D cinema format called RGBD. CLOUDS presents a generative portrait of this digital arts community in a videogame-like environment. The artists inhabit a shared space with their code-based creations, allowing you to follow your curiosity through a network of stories. What does it feel like to think with code? How can emerging technologies enable us to actualize our dreams? How has online sharing transformed the way artists collaborate?
