Clouds

An immersive, interactive documentary on the cutting edge of art and computer code.

This immersive, interactive documentary places the audience on the cutting edge of art and computer code. Filmed using a new 3D format called RGBD and created entirely with open-source software, Clouds uses a data-driven “story engine” to present an endless, ever-changing conversation. It explores themes of creativity and invention, interactive art, simulation, computational design, data visualization and the future of storytelling. By donning a virtual reality headset, you become part of an abstract universe full of living algorithms and digital data works of art: intangible, futuristic and topical. Clouds won the Tribeca New Media Award earlier this year.

Clouds is available on Oculus Rift through the Clouds webstore.

This project is part of the DocLab Expo: Immersive Reality presented by IDFA and De Brakke Grond.
