Young Dutch artist Berndnaut Smilde's cloud-making works are making the rounds online, having probably made their way by now into not a few iClouds. Pictures from the installation, "The Uncanny" at London's Ronchini Gallery, are being shared on Facebook and even showed up on Andrew Sullivan's Dish blog yesterday. 

Smilde's clouds are real, made by controlling moisture and using smoke machine, according to the photography magazine Vignette

It's easy to see why the images are gaining steam online -- they're kind of heavenly.

The show, also featuring works by young artist Adeline de Monseignat, is running from January 16 through February 16. It is curated by James Putnam. More information at ronchinigallery.com
