In this film I want­ed to look beyond the child­ish myth of ‘the cloud’, to inves­ti­gate what the infra­struc­tures of the inter­net actu­al­ly look like. It felt impor­tant to be able to see and hear the ener­gy that goes into pow­er­ing these machines, and the asso­ci­at­ed sys­tems for secur­ing, cool­ing and main­tain­ing them.”

Rarely has a dat­a­cen­ter looked this pret­ty.
