Dutch Artist Berndnaut Smilde has mastered the art of conjuring clouds. In her new series entitled Nimbus she uses “a delicate balance of smoke, moisture and light” to create clouds. Her creation is not purely scientific but also artistic. She creates striking visual imagery through; careful selection of cloud location and lighting. She uses the clouds as a metaphor for the transient nature of the human experience. She then uses photography to catch these fleeting moments. She strives to create an ominous feeling in this photo series. Smilde tries to create the in between moments of life because in those minutes she feels real life happens.
