Dutch artist Berndnaut Smilde has developed a way to simulate clouds indoors by carefully regulating the space’s humidity, temperature and light. This intersection of science and art was recently named one of TIME magazine’s “Best Inventions of the Year 2012.”
The fluffy white billows are summoned up temporarily using a fog machine, creating a dreamlike experience in the middle of a room. Smilde has created his clouds inside different types of locations, ranging from corridors and hallways, to bedrooms and common spaces.
Wouldn’t it be HILARIOUS to buy one of these clouds and set it up over the desk of the office curmudgeon (while he/she is not looking)?
