Fogscape #47412 - Fujiko Nakaya - Sapporo Art Museum

Japanese artist Fujiko Nakaya has been developing the idea of these atmospheric interventions for some time. Indeed this is numbered 47412 so perhaps longer than we know. This one has been developed as part of the Sapporo International Art Festival this year under the guest directorship of composer Ryuichi Sakamoto. While the idea is simple, the resultant manifestation of air movement, temperate variations, architectural form and topography is irresistibly fascinating. The fog renders so many elements visible and mobile which we otherwise ignore or simply bypass in our day to day interactions with the environments we habitually frequent. This is at once beautiful, dynamic and instructive: an idea which can legitimately continue to unfurl long after the seed has been planted. Until September the 28th.
