Abi Palmer Invents the Weather – Rain

The first in Palmer’s series, presented by Artangel, in which she recreates the seasons for her two indoor cats. Palmer tries to recreate petrichor by gathering up material from the forest floor and creating a rough methodology to distil the smell: soaking it in rainwater under a hunter moon, letting it ferment slightly, and then straining it through a crudely stitched cheesecloth “cloud” into a silver bowl.
