Silicon Mountain

PROJECT

Silicon Mountain

Silicon Mountain© is an artistic fiction that speculates on cultural structures that organize our relationship with nature. The performance looks back at where they historically stem from, and offers a glimpse into a possible near-future scenario.

In this project, Laurent Delom proposes a digitization of our impressions and feelings of contemplating sublime nature. These impressions are essential to our human condition on this beautiful planet, and yet are very fragile. To ensure that this legacy is passed on to future generations, Laurent Delom presents how they can be stored on the cloud.
