‘Fog? No, it’s Britain’s coolest art installation.’ SUNDAY TELEGRAPH

The world is getting warmer – but how will this change our weather? And how might a changing climate disrupt our lives?

In 2015, to celebrate Bristol’s status as European Green Capital, In Between Time invited a conjurer of unusual weather, artist Fujiko Nakaya, to the city.

Over 40 years, Nakaya has used fog as a sculptural medium. Collaborating with the elements, Fujiko’s clouds are created by water pumped at high pressure through many micro-fine nozzles.

Inviting Bristolian’s to pause their life for a moment, and take a small step into the unknown, Nakaya’s Fog Bridge premiered in the UK as part of IBT15 Bristol International Festival. Over 158,000 people experienced the immersive sculpture Fog Bridge that was sited on Bristol’s Pero’s Bridge in the Harbourside.
