Floating cloud installation by berndnaut smilde

'nimbus' by berndnaut smilde

'nimbus' is a seemingly impossible sculptural installation developed for the online gallery probe by amsterdam-based artist berndnaut smilde. Beginning with the concept of a vacant or abandoned room and aspirations of enhancing this ominous environment, smilde introduced smoke, moisture and backlighting. the artist was able to create the entirely eerie and whimsical illusion of a cloud floating within the gallery space.
