Juan Hein: Clouds And Bombs
Clouds hold a special fascination for humans – we cannot help attempting to decode them, either to predict the weather or just for fun. But certain clouds signify something more than an approaching storm or a vivid imagination. They are shaped by destruction, pushing upwards and blossoming like a mushroom after a nuclear detonation, or furiously rising atop an erupting volcano – terrifying epitomes of nature’s immense power. Juan Hein has turned this fascination towards the realm of technology, mining the digital cloud instead of seeking clouds in the sky. He peers into a vast body of information and images, and captures what he finds most interesting.
