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.
Just stunning! By the way, Andy Goldsworthy is also an artist that creates his art from material found in nature. Check him out.
Glad you like Smilde’s work, Selene — I’m a huge Goldsworthy fan, I definitely see the similarity!
As an artist, who utilizes what can be found in nature to create my art. I appreciate other artists who also think outside the typical mediums often found at your local arts and crafts stores.
These are so interesting. I wonder how the author got inspired to create these. Observing clouds in the sky one day and then thinking “I wish there were clouds in my interior too…”? It is very nice form of art.
