Nephelococcygia: ‘The act of seeking and finding shapes in clouds’ – wiktionary.org
Nephelococcygia v2 is a video projection displaying an image of clouds generated in real time using custom code. At regular intervals the custom software carries out an image search for recently posted images tagged ‘clouds’. These images are then averaged to create a composite. The result is a slowly shifting automatically generated landscape of clouds. At times ghostly images emerge, remnants of the original images.
