The People’s Cloud is an ongoing art/doc series getting to the bottom of the Internet; investigating the ecology and impact of cloud computing on the lives of those who use it, the places it is physically located in and the people who work to maintain it.

Travelling across Europe the project searches for the sites and sounds that make up infrastructure of the internet. From secretive data centre factories and network exchange hubs to submarine cables and fibre optic landing sites, THE PEOPLE’S CLOUD investigates the environmental and geopolitical impact of mobile data storage, asking engineers, technicians, manufacturers, physicists and artists what ‘the Cloud’ means to them and what this data boom has meant to their lives.
