Unknown Cloud

Dundee Rep

7 - 10 November 2018


Unknown Cloud is an immersive virtual reality experience / social experiment coming to Dundee.

“...imagine a portal between your immediate environment and the life-worlds of distant strangers...”

Unknown Cloud is a nomadic, global phenomenon, formed by the people who experience it...

Immersed in the cloud, audiences will explore participation, trust and compassion - cornerstones of an engaged and human society. Unknown Cloud’s mission is to use our everyday devices as a tool to re-connect with our own and other bodies, instead of allowing technology to disconnect us from the same. How can we mitigate the risks of trust, and make it easier to trust outgroup strangers?

Each evening at 8.45pm audience members will meet at Dundee Rep and be asked to download a free app: Unknown Cloud Caretaker - an artificial intelligence manifested as a voice. Through the app, audiences will start to hear the planets around them via headphones as the app’s position technology follows their movements in real time.
