Cloud People:a date for your diary

Yours truly has been busy of late being interviewed and photographed by the lovely Joanna Kane. Joanna’s latest project is part of the Alt-w initiative from New Media Scotland, funded by Creative Scotland and the Scottish Informatics and Computer Science Alliance.
Joanna says that Cloud People “is a project that looks at identity and networks in the age of cloud computing.
Giving visual form to the shifting nature of contemporary digital identity, Cloud People holds up a mirror that allows us to contemplate increasingly personal thoughts, intentions, and desires that have become downloadable, traceable and inerasable..”
The blurb from New Media Scotland says “Joanna’s work often draws on both visually based historical research and related investigations in new media.
She has captured information and images relating to personal persona, generating a portrait combining abstract mapping of data streams with composite photographic imagery.”
Nana thinks the images of virtual networks (like the one shown below) and the accompanying portraits of the protagonists Joanna has created are ethereal, intricate and very beautiful.
 Nana can’t wait to see what her own network looks like once Joanna has worked her magic.

Cloud People will briefly show as an exhibition at the InSpace gallery in Crichton Street, Edinburgh on Saturday 4th and Sunday 5th December.
Of course Nana will be attending the preview.

Don’t worry blogistas, Nana’s profile won’t be on display at this exhibition- you’ll have to work harder to unmask her than that, dahlinks. However, you are urged to pop along.
If you can’t make it, you can see more of Joanna’s work at http://www.joannakane.co.uk/. Just follow the link from Nana’s blogroll.
