Through Caretaker, participants start to hear the planets around them via normal headphones and the apps position technology which follows the movements of the planets in real time.
Alejandro Subiotto Marqués, visitor of Unknown Cloud at Tempelhofer Feld, Berlin, 25 Juli 2017
In 2016, a trans-disciplinary group led by artist duo Lundahl & Seitl launched a new plattform - a format which could take immersive art experiences directly to people. It was designed to evoke a global, secular ritual of our time, allowing for large scale participation anywhere in the public sphere.
The implicit narrative proposed by Unknown Cloud is that our culture produces a reality in which abstract fictional creations – money, contracts, corporations, religions, politics, borders etc. – are understood as more ‘real’ than the physical reality around us. This creates a fragmented worldview and world. The vision with the Cloud is therefore to show what we share just by being human beings.
