16 January 2013 Last updated at 00:01 GMT

A Dutch artist is generating a storm of attention with his art - Berndnaut Smilde creates clouds indoors.

The delicate displays only exist for a brief moment in time, leaving just a photograph or an image in the mind of the few who see him at work.

Smilde has three upcoming exhibitions this year including Ronchini Gallery in London which opens on Wednesday.

It is rare that anyone get to see the science behind these unique creations.

Anna Holligan went to meet Berndnaut Smilde to see how he controls the weather.
