Clouds features prominent and emerging computer hackers, media artists, and critics talking about
the creative use of code, the future of data, interfaces, and computational visuals. A series
of conversational vignettes centered around thematic topics, the subjects float in a black void,

Temporary Cities is a performance combining an augmented
reality visual instrument with live synthesized sound composition by Daniel Peterson.
A series of six vignettes, the performance draws inspiration from contemporary trends towards elaborate and disposable systems in software, architecture and social networks.
The project questions what cities of the future will function. Rapidly designed, instantaneously built, elaborated on then rendered obsolete by the next iteration. When math and material merge we will live in a world of temporary cities.
