Filtered Clouds_do not store in container



Participatory cloud-drinking project

Venue: from Tuscany into the world

Cloud catcher made of wood and net, approx. 4 x 1.5 x 1.5 m.

Filtered cloud water about 50 ml


During the one month residency at the Dr Éva Kahán Foundation in Tuscany, I conceived a 4 metre high,

six-sided tower designed to catch cloud water. The idea was inspired by water harvesting in arid regions

such as the Andes. My question of whether it is possible to milk clouds in Tuscany was followed by the

question of a possible connectivity between people who drink from the same cloud but do not live in the

same place. At a time when many were still in lockdown at home, I sent 5 millilitres of cloud water to

40 addresses in 11 countries on 3 continents, with the help of the Italian postal service. 

My only request was: please do not keep the water in its container, but return it to the water cycle.

Suggested approach was to drink the cloud water and let it pass through the digestive system before it

could eventually rejoin the water cycle and one day become a cloud again.
