CUMULUS is an experimental documentary project focused on the musician Imogen Heap.

The film was crafted only through the manipulation of data and content created and shared by Imogen Heap and her fans on social media and digital content platforms.

It was commissioned by the Reel Lives research project supported by the University of Birmingham, UK in order to explore the concept of ‘digital personhood’. The term “digital personhood” is used to discuss recognition of a human being as having status as a person in the electronic realm.

Produced and Directed by Christopher Ian Smith.
