Internet machine (trailer) from Timo on Vimeo.

This is what the network realy looks like.

Internet machine is a multi-screen film about the invisible infrastructures of the internet. The film reveals the hidden materiality of our data by exploring some of the machines through which ‘the cloud’ is transmitted, processed and transformed.

As the artist, Timo Arnall describes it:

In experiencing these machines at work, we start to understand that the internet is not a weightless, immaterial, invisible cloud, and instead to appreciate it as a very distinct physical, architectural and material system.

If you’re in the Barcelona area between now and October 26th (2014) you can see the film at the Big Bang Data exhibition.
