Fujiko Nakaya’s fog installations

'Veil' at the Glass House

‘Veil’ at the Glass House

Imagine fog as a medium for creating art.  How cool (damp, too….) is that?

Fujiko Nakaya is a Japanese artist who uses fog to create art installations.  Her father was a physicist who made the first artificial snowflakes.  Ms Nakaya uses a chemical free, fine nozzle system adapted from an invention originally intended for agricultural use.

Ms Nakaya presented her first fog installation at the Osaka World Expo in 1970.  She currently has The Glass House in Connecticut enveloped in fog.  She says, “I’m making an invisible, natural phenomenon visible.”

Unfortunately, the Art Caravan won’t be travelling to New Canaan, Connecticut any time soon…..but, who knows?  The installation is open to the public from May 1 to November 30, 2014.
