THE GLOBAL MACHINE

The internet is responsible for 2-3% of our world's CO2 emission. How? With every text message you send, every photo you share you are using data. And data is not just flowing around in the air. 'The Cloud' is not actually a cloud. In this movie we discover and research the relationship between climate change and the internet, visualizing what we might become: A global Machine. 
During this project we worked in the studio and in a data center. While building the Global machine, the mechanic city, we got creative and picked up some old motherboards from the thrift store.
