Artist Installs Walkable Cloud Bridge In San Francisco
The fog installation by Fujiko Nakaya gives visitors an atmospheric experience.
Japanese artist Fujiko Nakaya is known for her fog installations. The daughter of physicist Ukichiro Nakaya — who is known for his work in glaciology and snow crystal photography– Fujiko’s artistic medium of choice is water vapor and she has created numerous art environments and landscapes around the world. Among her popular works is Cloud Parking (pictured below), which she created in 2011 on building rooftops in Linz, Australia.
Her latest installation is Fog Bridge #72494 at San Francisco’s newly re-opened Exploratorium. The fog installation covers the 150-foot long bridge between Pier 15 and Pier 17. About 800 high pressure nozzles along the bridge will pump water to cover the entire area with mist. Visitors can walk through the fog bridge for an extraordinary experience. Lights at night will add to the surreal and heavenly atmosphere of the installation.
The installation will be on view until September 16th.
