Cloud Parking in Linz, 2011

A dense band of fog drifts over the rooftops of Linz—dense for a moment and then already vanishing again. It is an artificial natural phenomenon created by the grande dame of the Japanese art scene, Fujiko Nakaya, who already wrapped the HÖHENRAUSCH in fog in 2011. This year she gives us an encore. Following a precise, computer-controlled choreography, the fine spray forms into fleeting wafts of mist on the parking deck. Cloud Parking in Linz invites you to let yourself be “mystified” in the truest sense of the word — to dive down, disappear, and enjoy the “nothingness.”
