“Nimbus II” (Berndnaut Smilde – Courtesy of the artist)

Artist Berndnaut Smilde’s recent project of installing real Nimbus clouds in empty gallery spaces in Amsterdam reflects his interest in “the ephemeral aspect of the work”. By deliberately regulating the temperature and humidity of the designated space he can create a cloud to appear for a brief moment. The “art” can be seen only in person and documented in photographs, as the clouds dissipate quickly. You can view all of Smilde’s work on his website.
