Indoor Clouds created by Berndnaut Smilde

Whether you consider it sculpture, installation, performance or photography, if you see the art of Berndnaut Smilde in person, don’t blink – his artwork only exists for a moment.  In a relatively normal room or hallway a small cloud seems to materialize from nothing.  As quickly as it emerges, though, the cloud dissipates and is gone.
