Fujiko Nakaya was born in Sapporo, Japan in 1933. Her father is Ukichiro Nakaya, a celebrated physicist who is credited with making the first artificial snowflakes, and his influence can be seen in her works. For the 1970 World Expo in Tokyo, she collaborated with the artist collaborative Experiments in Art and Technology to create the world’s first fog sculpture, enveloping the Pepsi Pavilion in the mist. Since then, Nakaya has created numerous fog sculptures for institutions across the world.
