Cloud II, Walls

Zeitguised’s Cloud II, Walls builds tension between an uncontrolled catastrophe and the controlled, abstract and and clean environment of the engineer's drawing space. Considered as a homage to Daniel Libeskind's early drawing work Micromegas and the War and Architecture drawings of Lebbeus Woods, Cloud II, Walls makes it possible to think two realms as one: the possibility of systemic failure together with the assertion of control and the beauty of generating an artifact in between.

It is also part of Zeitguised's larger strand of work that depicts clouds of abstract grey goo: a transitionary, metastable mass that is nothing yet becomes anything, if only for a fleeting moment. A swarming system that shows symptoms of life and the agility of a connected organism, the cloud is a bastardisation of the abstract and the real - a borderline between fiction and concretisation.

In a post-anthropocentric motion, the cloud works postulate that the predictable merging of nano-, bio- and information technologies will render perpetually evolving shapes into real artifacts of uncertain polymorphic appearance.
