“Artist suspends real clouds in the middle of the room:
That’s not photoshop; that’s an actual cloud hovering inside an actual room. Artist Berndnaut Smilde merges art and science to create small man-made clouds that exist — albeit for just a moment — indoors.
Smilde uses a fog machine to make the actual clouds, but also carefully regulates the humidity and temperature. Even so, these installations exists for a mere moment before dissipating inside the room. If you’re not there in the moment, then you only get to experience these brief scientific sculptures as photographs.” via io9
Honestly, my head kind of hurts from thinking about this more than anything. It’s a trip, but pretty cool. I’m now waiting for someone to say they’re, “on cloud 9,” and swiftly faceplant, ha. More pictures are available here,
