Berndnaut Smilde has his heads in the clouds. The Dutch artist creates clouds by using a smoke machine combined with moisture and lightning to create clouds indoors. Smilde imagined walking into a museum hall with empty walls and just a rain cloud in the room. He achieved his mission of visualizing the cartoon-like cliche of having bad luck by using very precise science. The clouds only exist for a moment before vanishing. Smilde proofs their existence by taking photographs of these delicate phenomenons. Also the setting for the clouds is an important aspect. In an exhibit called ‘Nimbus’ he showed the following masterpieces. Impressive. And beautiful.
