Berndnaut Smilde Creates Clouds Indoors

Calling the work of Dutch artist Berndnaut Smilde ‘enigmatic’ is nearly an understatement.  He creates real clouds indoors which only last for a moment – just long enough to be photographed.  Carefully controlling a space’s humidity and temperature coupled with a quick burst from a fog machine, Smilde is able to make a cloud materialize which soon disappears.  The work, not quite a sculpture or installation, is only made more impressive by its temporality.  Smilde, in this way, is able to emphasize the potential of otherwise forgettable spaces.

Cloud Made of Thousands of Lightbulbs at Nuit Blanche Festival in Calgary

Cloud is an installation piece from Calgary artist/filmmaker Caitlind Brown. The piece, part of the Nuit Blanche festival, involves 5,000 light bulbs, most of which are burnt out, that form a large cloud. Participants in the festival were able to pull on metal strings -rain- in order to illuminate sections of the “cloud”, giving off the impression of lightning. Imagine an entire landscape composed of lightbulbs- lightbulb sun, lightbulb trees, lightbulb mountains, etc. Lots of possibilities…
