Yes, it seems crazy or totally fictional, the appearance of a cloud in a closed room is possible, thanks to the Dutch artist Berndnaut Smilde! What looks like magic, turns out to be a carefully calculated project made possible by a certain level of humidity, temperature and special lighting. This precise mixture (& the use of a smoke machine) allows the formation of a cloud inside an enclosed space ~ a surreal spectacle!
Melinda Gibson's series 'The Photograph as Contemporary Art' adheres to this theory, quite literally. She 'sticks things together' – in this case, sliced-up images culled directly from the pages of Charlotte Cotton's seminal book, The Photograph as Contemporary Art, which has graced the reading lists of nearly every academic institution offering a degree in photography since its publication in 2004.
