British artist Stuart Semple launched 2000 clouds shaped like smiley faces around the Tate Modern and Bankside in London.

Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it’s a smiling cloud!

Do you wake up in a foul mood and walk around like a zombie all morning? A double dose of coffee should get you going, but what would really liven up your day is if you were to come across a landscape as charming as the one Londoners had a chance to contemplate last week.

British artist Stuart Semple took it upon himself to cheer up passers-by who were out early enough to catch his curious installation called "HappyCloud" which consisted of filling the sky with pink clouds shaped like smiley faces.

Semple managed to launch over 2000 clouds - one every 7 seconds. The clouds floated around the London sky on the morning of February 25th before the stunned gaze of Londoners on their way to work. They must have wondered whether they were still in bed dreaming.

How were these durable floating clouds made?

Semple’s clouds don’t last quite as long as real clouds: they disappear from the sky within 30 minutes. But, it’s worth mentioning how he manages to produce a pink artificial cloud that can last 30 minutes. The artist used a technique that had never been used in the UK before. He was able to create these peculiar round clouds that last a half-hour by mixing soap, helium and pink vegetable dye.

His only aim was to make passers-by smile and brighten up their gloomy mornings with these cute floating friends. A sure way to get to work with a smile on your face, isn’t it?
