Humans have been changing the composition of the atmosphere for years, resulting in concerns such as air pollution and extreme climate events. According to Filips Stanislavskis, geo-engineering is the technological solution the world needs: he built a human cloud generator to create a closer connection with our climate.

The Human-Cloud Project is Stanislavski's speculative project consisting of several experimental instruments. Intimacy with the climate occupies centre stage. The breath collector is a device used for a breathing session where the user's breath is condensed and stored. After that, all collected exhalations are mixed with other people's breaths and transferred to the cloud generator.

With a large weather balloon, the cloud generator is brought about 1 km into the sky, where it activates when in the right atmospheric conditions for cloud formation. Then the liquid breath is evaporated and a temporary human cloud forms: a Cumulus Homomutatus. The purpose of the human clouds is to reflect sun rays back into space, slowing down the process of global warming.

Stanislavski sees breathing not only as a biological necessity, but also as a political act. When we see the climate system as a collective project, everyone is part of the solution where every breath counts.
