Berndnaut Smilde, can create clouds under a roof. He recently introduced some real aura clouds in Amsterdam, in an empty gallery like space.
The question is how he does that? The simple answer to it lies within our powerful science that if you regulate the temperature and control the humidity of the space, creating ideal or nearly perfect conditions, and spray a short burst from a fog machine to create a cottony cloud suspended in the middle of the space you have worked on for this splendorous view even if it lasts just for an instant.
But this dream like ambiance lasts for such a few seconds that your blink of eye can let you miss the view. However, he chooses hypnagogic spaces like gallery, empty church for setting it up.

It may seem like smoke, but it is a real cloud, on closer inspection you can see condensation on walls.
“I wanted to make a very clear image, an almost cliche and cartoon like visualization of having bad luck,” writes Smilde in his artist’s statement.
Smilde’s admirers have captured a video of his fabulous creation.
