Ever Clouds Domino @ DLD11
Here's a short talk on the Cloud House which seems to be getting attention anew. In the talk, I attempt to connect the idea of the domino frame as a template which people "fill up with their lives" as similar situation to todays "cloud computing lifestyle where we constantly upload our "life" onto templates such as facebook, flickr, twitter and tumblr. Finally the way that the Dom-ino frame was used in the south mediterranean, as an ephemeral structure to be completed at will, and to be constantly updated as a building, related to the current internet constant customization of cloud pages (google themes, gmail themes, facebook setting etc). And of course how it is all put together into a single memorable object.
and here's the entire Ever Clouds panel, as moderated by Hans Urlich Obrist, featuring among others the great Hubert Damisch (Philosopher), Elizabeth Diller (Diller Scofidio + Renfro)
Hans Magnus Enzenberger (Poet) and Mr Tomas Saraceno (Artist)
