About the Artwork:

Data Cloud (2022), is an image of a cloud produced from its own metadata, screenprinted onto a 23.75ct gold leaf background.

The work explores the strange collision between clouds and computing, and how landscape metaphors make technology seem as natural as the weather. It highlights the comparative value systems of the material and digital worlds, personal data now being more valuable than gold.

The gold leaf extends, but also holds the illusion of immateriality in check. It anchors the viewer to the present as its reflective surface is activated by the movement of light, while also suggesting another realm. The data meanwhile, appears to move in streams above it.

The digital cloud is constructed from metals, plastics, concrete, while its cooling systems and computer storage facilities exist in a landscape hidden away from everyday experience, a vast digital wilderness. The work conjures up the metals and extractive processes that facilitate cloud computing, while reminding us of the dependence of the immaterial illusion on the material world.



FRAMING INFORMATION

FRAMING

The framed price, if listed on a product page, will be for the framing as seen in the gallery or as photographed online. Due to the limited-edition nature of the artwork, we have collaborated with a local London framer to offer bespoke, high- quality framing that will protect the prints, so that the artwork can be enjoyed for many years to come. Most of the work hung in the gallery has been framed with high-spec UV art glass, to minimise reflection and also preserve the image, although of course there are other framing/glass options available, so please do contact us by phone, email or pop-in to our gallery to brief us and get a final quote.

LEAD TIMES

Orders with framing included will take longer; please allow an additional 3-4 weeks for framing prior to dispatch, however we will endeavour to turn the framing around as soon as possible. 

DELIVERY

Framing orders will be sent at extra cost due to size, fragility, and weight. In some cases we may be able to deliver directly to your door without charge. Please contact us for individual delivery quotes for any orders with framing. 

EXTRA INFORMATION

If the print has a straight edge, or already has a border as part of the print, then no border is required. The print is framed flush with the edge of the frame.

Many of our artists produce prints with a 'deckled' or a torn edge. Prints like this look best float mounted, when the artwork is adhered to a mountboard, leaving a white border between the print and the inside of the frame, showcasing the edge of the print.

A window mount is used to create a 'cut out' window inside the frame of your print. The window mount sits on top of the print, usually overlapping the edges slightly, creating a clean border around the piece in a classic style. The mount width is included in the overall size when measuring frames.

Henrietta Simson

Henrietta Simson works with a variety of media including painting, sculpture, installation, photographic and digital technology in order to explore the landscape image, its historical and cultural development, and its current possibilities within a digital context framed by ecological crisis. Her work is engaged in a reappraisal of visual and spatial structures in order to move beyond landscape as the ‘de facto’ representational image, towards a sense of landscape as embodied form.

She teaches at Camberwell College of Arts in London.
