The Last Cloud is a live net art performance which reflects on the web browser as a source of form and content. The performance uses livecoding to control several browser windows with HTML media, including HTML5 audio and video players, Google Maps, GIFs, andimages. This media is mashed up and glitched in a narrative media collage. The work is accompanied by a web audio composition whichuses samples, synthesis, text-to-speech, and processed media element streams to put the sound of web browsing in a musical context.The Last Cloud is inspired by the history of media artists who have turned media for reproducing content into instruments for generatingcontent. In this case, the web browser, which was first used as an avenue for viewing reproductions of 20th century media such asnewspapers, photographs, and recorded songs, is used as an instrument for glitching, splicing, and collaging those media, creating a newform of art which could not exist in any other medium.
