Fogscape #03238Fujiko Nakaya, Simon Corder (Japan / UK)

Veteran Japanese artist Fujiko Nakaya was the first artist to use fog as a sculptural medium, using it for the transmission of light and shadow.

Nakaya’s ghostly installation for Lumiere, Fogscape #03238, conjured up the spirit of St Cuthbert’s mist.

Simon Corder has been working with light in the environment for thirty years. He returned to Lumiere to make this work with Fujiko Nakaya. Corder’s installation, Winter Garden, was part of the festival in 2009.
