Fujiko Nakaya's fog art

Earlier this year, Tate Modern's Switch House extension included a wonderful installation of fog art by Fujiko Nakaya.

Tate Modern has announced a bold new artwork – artificial fog. Japanese artist Fujiko Nakaya will be installing a cloud of mist in London, which was famous for being cloaked in fog in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, for a 10-day exhibition next year.

The 83-year-old artist has been working since the 1970s to develop a system to disperse water vapour at high pressure to create a cloud of mist. Her father is credited with making the first artificial snowflakes.

Nakaya first became interested in fog after painting clouds.
