Greenland by Fujiko & Ukichiro Nakaya

Art Free

The daughter of Ukichiro Nakaya, the physicist credited with manufacturing the first artificial snowflakes, Fujiko Nakaya has been playing with the elements since the 1970 World Expo in Osaka. That was when she enshrouded the Pepsi Pavilion in mist, becoming the first artist to create a sculptural fog environment. Fujiko has displayed these ultra-immersive works around the world ever since, most recently hitting up the Tate Modern in London, and now reveals her latest creation at Maison Hermès. 'Glacial Fogfall' is obviously the highlight of 'Greenland', named after the place where Ukichiro moved to do research in his later years, but you can also look forward to environmental observations by both father and daughter.
