CLOUDNET is an ode to the vast fishing communities that have helped build and sustain Cadiz Bay (Spain) throughout its history. Using a wide variety of netting utilized in fishing, CLOUDNET is activated by the movement of the observer, as pulses of light energize the cloud from within.
But this is only dimension of the piece. For it not only shares the stories and hardships of local fishermen today (via recorded interviews), but highlights the devastating phenomenon of ‘ghost fishing’, where lost, dumped or abandoned fishing gear continues to ensnare fish or marine organisms. Beyond the physical interactions with CLOUDNET, the audience is asked to consider both human and marine populations and the possibility and viability of coexistence.
