The Cloud

In storing our data we created the idea our own personal cloud, hovering in our houses, above our heads. We imagine this non space, virtual data which has no physical body it belongs to The idea of data in the cloud denies the physical and territorial reality of information ownership. The notion of the cloud also shows the almost monotheistic tendencies of our approach to technology and the evolution of our technological literacy. The cloud is our god. It needs to be fed to keep us alive. We feed it our data and in exchange we can live our lives online.
