Under the umbrella of the International media art festival CYFEST-11, Ca’ Foscari Zattere hosts the exhibition “Weather Forecast: Digital Cloudiness”. The show presents the work of 11 artists from 5 countries tackling the theme of “digital clouds”: private and public storages without forms and borders. In August 2006 started Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) project and almost at once terms «cloud» and «cloud computing» appeared in one of the speeches of Eric Schmidt, head of Google. Since then we have been seeing numerous references to cloud computing in mass media and scientific publications of experts of Information Technology. Observing the evolution of cloud technologies and adapting scientific discoveries to creative processes the artists offer their own “weather forecast” to the public in Venice.
