In an interactive media setting CLOUDS IN THE SHARK POOL reflects the role of the artist as a medium between the poles of cooperation and competition – an antagonism forming one of the main pillars of onholding scientific discussion. Where does the artist stand today? In the process of humans and machines growing together more and more one can divine a medialization of identity, thus a synchronization of individuality. As a consequence, the question needs to be posed whether not only information itself is a medium but whether the artist her-/ himself – thus, humans themselves – are nothing but media.

After 100 years of having been perceived the role of the artist as ‘freed’ it has become redundant. (*)
