Cloud study is currently exhibited for the October Digital festival in Arles!
A cloud image taken from the painting "Landscape under a turbulent sky", which Vincent van Gogh painted in Arles in April 1889. The image is formed from drops which are composed of dew water collected in a field like the one of the table, during the summer of 2020.
Harvesting dew water in the very early morning near the city of Arles, using one of the methods recommended by alchemists. When the atmospheric conditions were met to allow the deposition of dew during the night, the artist Dominique Peysson slid a cotton sheet over the grass and the leaves to impregnate it with this water coming directly from the clouds.
