The Unknown Cloud on Its Way to Berlin is commissioned by Berliner Festspiele / Immersion. The Berliner Festspiele is a business division of the Kulturveranstaltungen des Bundes in Berlin (KBB)GmbH.
Unknown Cloud is something you read about in the newspapers; discover in an update on social media, in an advert in the underground station, or hear about as whispered rumours. It can only beaccessed within a limited timeframe and at a specific geographical location, but like a natural cloud it travels, passing national borders from above. A website, www.unknowncloud.com tracks itsmovement and announces the next stop.
The Caretaker predicts that the cloud will arrive at Tempelhofer Feld, Berlin on 14 July / 18 July / 21 July / 25 July / 28 July 2017
The experience is brought to the participants by an app: Unknown Cloud Caretaker, which is developed by a newly developed and innovative tool called Nagoon, consisting of a complex 3-dimensionalsoundscape, which is connected to existing environments on location, and follows the movements of the planets in real time. Unknown Cloud Caretaker is an artificial intelligence manifested as a voicerecorded and synthesized from local people beforehand and integrated into the experience to strengthen realism and local recognition. It uses location data and a geofence to activate the experiencefor Cloud followers.
Download the app, open it and follow instructions to make contact with the Caretaker.
The Caretaker was invented by Lundahl & Seitl with Liquid Media / Nagoon to track the movements of the Unknown Cloud and enable connection with it.
