Thought behind the Thought
Clouds are fascinating. Dense and transperent at the same time, they float about the sky forming an everchanging sculpture bathed in sunlight during the day, and a beautiful veil hiding the moon and the stars at night.
There is so much one can learn from clouds! They are very much a part of the cycle of life, absorbing life in the form of water when it rises up to meet them, and also giving it away to the earth when its time. Hold what you can, till you must. Give it away when the time is right, and move on just like the cloud. Travel light! And stay miles above the earth!!
About the Art
To recreate the cloud sculptures of the skies is definitely not an easy job! But Berndnaut Smilde does just that. He creates clouds in the interior spaces using water vapour and his artistic sensitivity, and creates ephemeral though beautiful art, that he captures in equally beautiful photographs!
It is indeed interesting to see how he creates art, literally out of thin air!
Berndnaut Smilde (b.1978, Groningen, Netherlands) lives and works in Amsterdam. He has exhibited across The Netherlands and also in Toronto, Taipei, Istanbul, Dublin, Paris, London and San Francisco. In 2013, he opened his first large scale solo exhibition in the US at Land of Tomorrow in Louisville, Kentucky, and guest curated a show at the Bonnefantenmuseum in Maastricht. His Nimbus series was recognised by TIME Magazine as one of the "Top Ten Inventions of 2012". He was a resident artist at the Irish Museum of Modern Art, Dublin in 2008. Smilde received his BA in 2001 from the Minerva Academy and his MA in 2005 from the Frank Mohr Institute, both in The Netherlands.
