Dutch artist Berndnaut Smilde’s dreamy indoor clouds.

Dutch artist Berndnaut Smilde creates fluffy, white clouds in unique indoor settings. In his ‘Nimbus’ series, Smilde has developed a well versed technique that produces clouds, which he then photographs in churches, museums and castles.

 

Clouds are just about the most universal matter one could think of. But seeing them indoors, with their organic forms in contrast to manmade architecture, really throws me off.

Berndnaut Smilde carefully adjusts the temperature and humidity of his scouted locations. Thereon he produces perfect little clouds using water vapour and a fog machine. The lifespan of his artwork is about 10 seconds – just long enough for the cloud to be photographed.
