Berndnaut Smilde's Indoor Clouds

How beautiful is this? Both in concept and execution, this kind of art deserves the recognition it is receiving.

I love that each cloud only exists for a brief few moments before disappearing; those that are present are truly the only witnesses to the actual "art" created; photographs and video are only documents of it. The performance of the art is the star and like a moment in time, it only truly exists in the mind of those present and aware. The technology isn't revolutionary, the settings are fairly obvious, but the overall emotion and meaning of the project is absolutely beautiful.
