Current excercise: Christmas lights

During these dates of festivities and fuss, go out to the busy streets and capture a video of the lights with your camera, videocamera or cameraphone. Make your own interpretation of Christmas and New Year's lighting with a few seconds of footage. The results will be similar (or not) to The fall. Lights small, blinking, tinkling, coloured, figures, starry, textual, ironic, joyous...

Technical details: minimum width or height of 400 pixels (the bigger the better, the easiest is for you to send your video without resizing or compressing). Ideal format: MOV (Quicktime). Send your collaboration or questions to lasociedaddelasnubes(a)

We appreciate your spreading the word across earth, air and sea.

The Cloud Society is a free, collective project. Every once in a while a creative excercise is proposed. Anyone can participate, there is no censorship, no filter. The only requisite is to follow the instructions, respect the deadline, and have a good time. It's not about making sublime art (though sublime results are welcome) but about losing fear of tiny challenges and to have fun through artistic experiences. A creative gymnasium.

We can also add you to our mailing list so you receive alerts of new excercises in your e-mail, just let us know.
