Indoor Clouds


Talk about bringing the outdoors in! Dutch Artist Berndnaut Smilde has created the perfect art piece in a real life fluffy white cloud. The cloud is created by carefully regulating the space’s humidity, temperature and light. The masterpiece only lasts a few moments but it is certainly dramatic. Understandably, this collision of art and science has landed Smilde on TIME magazine’s “Best Inventions of the Year 2012.”
