A severed head floats as if in a weightless state, in a grainy, moving image. The camera circles the head slowly. Occasionally the head vanishes behind a thick wall of scratches. The title of this piece is a reference to the book The Cloud of Unknowing, written by an anonymous medieval mystic. According to the book there is a cloud of unknowing between man and God, and God is forever obscured by the cloud. Inspired by both this religious metaphor and scientific imagery this video plays with notions of presence and absence.
