This Artist Creates Indoor Clouds By Controlling Environment

Whether you consider it sculpture, installation, performance or photography, if you see the art of Berndnaut Smilde in person, don’t blink – his artwork only exists for a moment.  In a relatively normal room or hallway a small cloud seems to materialize from nothing.  As quickly as it emerges, though, the cloud dissipates and is gone.  Very carefully controlling factors such as temperature and humidity, Smilde creates these small man-made clouds and photographs them.  His work playfully disrupts normal indoor spaces, bringing a part of the visual language of the outdoors within.  In this way, his artwork transforms the space it works in, infusing a sense of mystery into otherwise banal spaces.

    I recently noticed that on my iPod, one of the artists I have in iTunes is not being transferred correctly. Everything I have in iTunes is being transferred to my iPod except this artist. I can find all the songs on the album under the “Songs” section, but the artist does not appear under “Artists”. The artist also does not appear on the “Cover Flow” mode.

    I have tried restoring my iPod and transferring everything over again, and that did not work.
