“Occupy the Cloud” by James Bridle (2013)

Artists,Reference — miles @ 1:37 pm

“Occupy the Cloud” takes the form of three banners in front of a brutalist office building in central London. On each banner is a symbol, from left to right: the lightning bolt of the international squatters’ movement, the @ symbol (acquired by MoMA in 2010)  and the Cloud symbol. The banal corporate aesthetic of the banners belies the polemical tone of the three symbols read sequentially. Taken together, they suggest that the Cloud is a prime site for political intervention. The installation is timely and ominous in the wake of the 2013 NSA revelations.
