This is so cool! The scale and lighting boggles the mind for an instant. After all, our brain doesn’t expect to see a cumulus cloud indoors I guess.
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.
