As with Batia Suter’s previous projects, ‘Cloud Service’ is primarily interested in the visual dialogue that emerges with the simple act of placing images in new relations to one another. Drawing from her vast personal library of natural history reference books, encyclopaedias, and other flea market finds, Suter assembles a mix of “non-art” images, adapted and reoriented in intuitive and often profound ways. The set of appropriated images comprising this book is a monographic index of clouds and cloud-suggestive forms. Placed in the right sequence, these images resonate in new and complex ways, manipulate each other, and take on new depths of meaning with a sort of synaptic leap.
