Everyone loves clouds, but until now they’ve only been avail­able out­doors. Artist Berndnaut Smilde makes clouds indoors, as part of very tem­por­ary art exhib­its – check them out. [Found via Boing Boing]

Over on Colossal, there’s some really fas­cin­at­ing wire sculp­ture; I love the sketchy look of these, like someone had drawn the images on the air itself.

Which, I sup­pose, is exactly what’s going on in these light-painting pic­tures, also via Colossal. Light paint­ing involves long expos­ures and hand­held mov­ing light sources, and in this case the res­ults are stunning.

Talking of long expos­ures, back on Boing Boing there’s  this fant­astic set of long expos­ure shots taken by Flight Engineer Don Pettiton from the International Space Station: well worth a look.

We don’t often fea­ture com­puter gen­er­ated art here, but this pro­ject from Giuseppe Randazzo uses a nice blend of art, sci­ence and maths to gen­er­ate pat­terns of vir­tual stones. From the site: “The vir­tual stones cre­ated by sev­eral fractal sub­di­vi­sion strategies, find their proper pos­i­tion within the circle, with a trial and error hier­arch­ical algorithm. A mix of attract­ors and scalar fields (some with Perlin noise) drives the dens­ity and size of the stones.”

And finally, like Lego? Like M.C. Escher? Like Star Wars? Then you’ll def­in­itely like Paul Vermeesch’s amaz­ing Star Wars Relativity model; incred­ible work.
