Indoor clouds by Berndnaut Smilde

Berndnaut Smilde can turn a clear sky cloudy – indoors. The Dutch artist applies basic science to suspend a cottony cloud in the middle of a room. It lasts only an instant before collapsing, so his projects mainly exist in pictures taken throughout the process.

Smilde is fascinated by transition and ‘anything in between’ like corridors and clouds – not yet there and not yet solid. He is interested in the ephemeral aspect of the work: “It’s there for a brief moment and then the cloud falls apart. It’s about the potential of the idea, but in the end it will never function.”

His works make me sit and stare in awe. Do you like them?

    • lol 🙂 I thought that it was photoshop work or something to begin with. There is actually a movie on Berndnaut’s website showing how the cloud appears and then disappears – pretty cool 🙂 the only reason I didn’t put it on is that it’s in Dutch! 🙂
