From Cloud to Crowd Poster Campaign  Image
In collaboration with artists Batool Desouky and Cristina Cochior, NEoN and The Institute for Technology in the Public Interest (TITiPI) present a call to action, 'From Cloud to Crowd'. This campaign is part of the Trans*Feminist Counter Cloud Action Plan by TITiPI and infuses the NEoN programme at irregular moments, with a continuing commitment between 2022-2027. The aim of the plan is to:

* Bring communities together internationally to refuse the takeover of our institutions' resources by Big Tech.
* To reimagine relationships with "the cloud" and to dream of community and collective infrastructures (some of which might be digital!).
* To make the conditions for taking care of descent and dissent from the cloud whilst partying in the ruins of Big Tech.

The 18 large posters, designed by Batool Desouky and Cristina Cochior, are digitally printed and displayed near the riverfront in Dundee. The posters are formed by different formulas entered on a spreadsheet mixing earth, water and sky. They propose to dissent from the land and extractive resource grabbing of Big Tech into an imagination of grounded infrastructures which remake our elemental relations.

Designed with inky blues, browns and greens, the spreadsheets become a different type of computational record keeping or plotting, each cell notated, from which slogans and poetry call the passerby. In a city where at every turn you are greeted with an advertisement for yet another Big Tech solution, instead, the spreadsheet pixels welcome a more tender relationship with the world as if blown in on the wind from the river Tay. Reminiscent of Dionne Brand's line in the Blue Clerk, keeping "account of cubic meters of senses, perceptions and resistant facts". And together, the glittering cells display slogans, statements and questions that show a commitment to cloud resistance, computational regeneration, community maintenance, and collective transformations.
