Everyday Design: Indoor Clouds

Spring is one of our favorite seasons here in Oklahoma and that is mainly because it’s storm season! You always recognize the visitors from the “locals” because they typically run to the nearest shelter as soon as their is any sign of tornado activity while everyone else is setting out lawn chairs.

When you’re in the country you get the best seat in the house. Watching storms roll in from afar and seeing how the clouds take shape and move across the sky is a surreal and powerful moment. We just love how artist Berndnaunt Smilde has captured that moment in an indoor setting and encourages us to look at each cloud as truly unique piece of art.

“These stunning photos of indoor clouds might look like digital creations, but they’re actually of real scenes… The clouds are generated using a smoke machine, but Smilde must carefully monitor a room’s humidity and atmosphere in order to get the smoke to hang so elegantly, and with such life-like form. Backlighting is used to bring out shadows from within the cloud, to give it that look of a looming and ominous rain cloud.”Mother Nature Network

The cloud instillation is so majestic and angelic like. It really makes you long for that next BIG storm! We’re looking forward to more opportunities to cloud watch and storm chase as this spring has already brought us lots of wonderful rain (which means the blackberry’s are growing great!).

Do you hide from storms or like to watch them? What is your favorite storm watching moment?

    Oh my! This is magical!

    Jeremy and I watched a lightning storm from 30,000 ft. in the air on our flight home from NYC recently. It was pretty fantastic.

    OH! AND! Congrats on your little guy! I’m so happy for you guys.
