We may be in the midst of an arctic vortex, but at least we can stay cozy indoors, away from the weather. That’s not the case when it comes to the work of Amsterdam-based artist Berndnaut Smilde, who transforms spaces and places for just an instant, creating temporary clouds with a combination of temperature, humidity, and science.
Smilde transforms these quiet, seemingly abandoned spaces with small clouds that last only long enough for a photograph. The final product is one of disrupted solitude, with nature breaking down the barriers of man-made structures.
