PCLOUDS – NEBULA
TEMPORARY DESIRABLE SPACES

2016+

Commissioned by the museum for literature Strauhof Zurich in collaboration with Maike Thies, this exhibition built on the Per-Forming Clouds project to find new ways in an immersive story-telling. Fog was used to create a horizontal layer of mist to be manipulated through the visitors. Additionally fm transmitters and media stations helped to support the associative qualities of fog from a cultural perspective.

STRANGE AND EXTRAORDINARY FOG

Extract of a letter from Kensington, in Connecticut.

«On the third instant, about sun-rise, at this place was a fog of so strange and extraordinary appearance, that it filled us all will amazement. It came in great bodies, like thick clouds, down to the earth, and in its way, striking against the houses, would break and fall down the sides in great bodies, rolling over and over. It resembled the sick steam rising from boiling wort, and was attended with such heat that we could hardly breathe. When first I saw it I really thought my house had been on fire, and ran out to see if it was so; but many people thought the world was on fire, and the last day come. One of our neighbours was then at Sutton, 100 miles to the eastward, and reports it was much the same there. (Annual Register, 1:90-91, 1758)»
