You may have missed this in Time Magazine, what with Sandy, the election, the cliff etc.

How cool is it that artist Berndnaut Smilde can make a cloud appear inside a room?  He requires a precise temperature, humidity and lighting.  When he has that all set, Berndnaut produces the cloud with a fog machine.  Click on the link to see a video of the process:  Berndnaut Smilde Makes Clouds Appear in a Room

I agree with Time.  It definitely reminds me of Magritte, but with a classic Old Masters twist.
