Internet Machine‘ by artist Timo Arnall is a multi-screen video about the invisible infrastructures of the internet. Documenting one of the largest, most secure and ‘fault-tolerant’ data-centers in the world, the film reveals the hidden materiality of information through an investigation of some of the machines through which ‘the cloud’ is transmitted and hosted. ‘in this film I wanted to look beyond the childish myth of ‘the cloud’,’ explains Arnall, ‘to investigate what the infrastructures of the internet actually look like. It felt important to be able to see and hear the energy that goes into powering these machines, and the associated systems for securing, cooling and maintaining them.’ an exhibition of the works can be seen at BIG BANG DATA.

Kimi is everything but Iceman in private life. He is very warmhearted person who takes good care of his friends when they are at his home. Kimi is easy to come along with and he has a very good sense of humour. He is nothing like his public image
