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.
Nakaya's "immersive fog sculpture" will be staged on the terrace outside Tate Modern's new Switch House extension.
The BMW Tate Live Exhibition: Ten Days Six Nights runs from March 24 to April 2.
