Dutch artist Berndnaut Smilde does something pretty unusual: not only is he a great cloud photographer, he’s making those clouds artificially in the Neuehouse studio in Manhattan. How? Based on the video above, it appears to use some sort of spray vapor and a fog machine. His exact method and what is in that mist isn’t shared, but the result looks like a typical fluffy cloud on a summer day… except it’s indoors.

It looks very scientific and high tech but it isn’t, really! Those water particles stick to the smoke and they kind of keep together for just a short while.

I wonder what it would look like if we combined some fashion with these clouds. I bet it could yield some pretty outstanding results.
