Nimbus Series by Berndnaut Smilde
“Nimbus” is a series of sculptural installations developed by Amsterdam-based artist Berndnaut Smilde.
“…recreating a cloud and all the physical elements that go along with it is an act that requires meticulous planning entailing carefully controlling the temperature and humidity levels of the room, constantly moistening the air inside it and adjusting the lighting to create a dramatic and realistic effect. When the room conditions are ideal, a fog machine unleashes a dense mist that appears heavy and damp, just like a real life raincloud. Floating proudly in the middle of the oddest of spaces, they last for only a few brief moments before dissipating into thin air.”Art Photography Video & Motion Posted on September 29, 2013
