Barbara Felicetti of Ardmore, PA recently drew our attention to this article on the New Scientist website by their CultureLab editor, Kate Austen who was lucky enough to visit the experimental sci-art gallery “Le Laboratoire” in Paris to view these beautiful crocheted cumulus clouds.

“Lit from within and above, the swathes of crocheted white wool hang from the ceiling to just half a metre above the ground, casting familiar shadows on the gallery floor. The fluffy cashmilon wool chosen by the artist, Argentinean architect Ciro Najle, works well for cumulus clouds – the puffy ones that can precede thunder storms, and are precursors to the godfather of clouds, the cumulonimbus” she says.
