Great find...

A microcosm, personal study of the experience I know ideating on high-dimensional visualization of pressure/temperature/humidity/particulate density spaces and their evolution by watching clouds form/disperse.

@7:30 in the video, his exhibit is reminiscent of "old faithful"...   how many of us (or our parents taking us there) were too impatient to wait for the next hourly geyser and only have photographs or videos to refer to, no personal memory of such a transient/ephemeral event?

I'm sure y'all have seen this already. But it was new to me.

- Smilde is a Dutch artist who has been creating artworks involving real clouds formed indoors since 2010. - The clouds are created using a fog machine and water vapor. He builds a "wall" of vapor then introduces smoke which interacts with the vapor to briefly form cloud shapes. - The clouds only last for a few seconds before dispersing. His art aims to capture transience. - He photographs the clouds, often with professional photographers, striving for technically perfect images. - The photos typically show the clouds set against the backgrounds of rooms or buildings, like a church nave where he was recently invited to work. - Smilde sees ambiguity and duality in the works - the clouds can seem threatening or divine, building up then quickly falling apart. - His cloud photos have spread widely online since 2012 when Time Magazine highlighted them. They have universal appeal. - He has staged fashion shoots with designers using the clouds. His works sell for thousands of euros.
