‘Clouds’, An Interactive Documentary That Explores Code and Creativity Through Conversation

CLOUDS is an interactive hybrid documentary by James George and Jonathan Minard that presents interviews and conversations with 40 different artists, hackers, designers and coders who use computer code as part of their creative process. The creators successfully raised enough money through Kickstarter in 2013 to fund the film, which is available for purchase now.

A generation of artists and hackers have emerged on the internet using open source technologies for experiments in art and design. CLOUDS is an interactive documentary and a portrait of this community of digital pioneers, explored through the lens of code. The project asks questions about the future of creativity at a time when algorithms play an important role in shaping culture.
