Beginning tomorrow, Fujiko Nakaya: Veil will add a dose of atmospheric drama to the intrinsically dramatic iconbuilt in 1949, overlooking a valley in New Canaan, Connecticutby wrapping it in her signature medium: fog.

Known for creating fog-based sculptures around the world, Nakaya’s Veil will be the culmination of a meticulously crafted installation involving highly pressurized fresh water, pumped through 600 nozzles. The resulting mist will envelope the Glass House densely enough to produce the illusion of erasing it altogether, only to have it re-emerge as the mist dissipates, creating a ghostly, ever-changing architectural and environmental tableau.

Fujiko Nakaya: Veil, which marks the Glass House’s 65th birthday, will remain open to the public from May 1 through November 30.dsc_00671the-glass-house-presents-fujiko-nakaya-veil-designboom-02dsc_00721the-glass-house-presents-fujiko-nakaya-veil-designboom-04the-glass-house-presents-fujiko-nakaya-veil-designboom-05dsc_00577
