Kujiko Nakaya’s Cloud Parking, 2011
MoMA’s Rain Room may have been the most FOMO-inducing frenzy to hit the museum circuit in recent history, but the indoor drizzle was certainly not the first manipulation of meteorological materials. The daughter of the physicist credited with manufacturing the first artificial snowflakes, Fujiko Nakaya has been playing with the elements since the 1970 World Exposition in Osaka, Japan, when she enshrouded the Pepsi Pavilion, becoming the first artist to create a sculptural-fog environment. Tonight she discusses her interest in everyday weather phenomena with Henry Urbach, the director of New Canaan, CT’s the Glass House, where she is currently enjoying her first large-scale exhibition on the East Coast.
