Mining the Cloud (2016-)

Mining the Cloud is a practice based exploration into metaphor mythodologies, investigating the two metaphors mining and the cloud. By reflecting on the mediating effect of the terms that are used to speak about the daily network technologies, this project will develop a critical reading on their use, historical context and functioning to a broad audience.

This is a collaborative project with Julie Boschat Thorez.
