Fog installation by Fujiko Nakaya. Since her installation in Osaka in 1970 she has only worked artificial water fog.
Her fog installations are produced with a pump system that is powered by three-phase 200-volt supply to spray water through tiny stainles steel noozles at 1000 pounds per square inch. The water droplets are about 20-30 microns to create natural looging fog.
For this particular installation theme, she reveals the delicate balance of nature and transforms the environment into illusory time/space.

I appreciate Your note, I see it was very interesting installation, but... The photo is not interesting at all :|
It's not very visual, it doesn't catch attention. Couldn't You've chosen any other picture, maybe presenting something more attactive?
It's even hard (if not pointless!) to talk about the technical side.

well, i quite like it really, i feel the fourth person's existance (i sensed the fourt one somewhere in the distant fog!) moody and mysterious overall, quite avant-garde in its own way too..(only nitpick maybe -or something which bothers me - is the colour noise i see in the foreground.)
nice one Peter, whole feeling counts for me..

sorry Peter...but I can't say it does anything for me... It doesn't make me think or feel anything really...
I do however, think this could almost work as a follow-up to that stalker picture, if the person in front were female... The beanie hat makes the follower look a little intimidating...
I think the most irritating thing for me is that pink..possibly because it reminds me of women's hygiene products :|

I like the atmosphere you've created here Peter. It's definately a good follow up from the last one. The last one showed people (zombies) staggering through the streets, and so does this, but from a different angle. I like it how we can't see any part of the face and that we (the viewers) are part of the action.

perhaps less fitting for te but i still like this.. i think it may be better appreciated as part of the whole series though... surprised you didn't go for b&w though.. and WHY specifically this pinkish hue?.. was it the actual color rendition of your camera or was the pp intentional to contrast the somber and menacing mood of the composition? either way (even though it didn't remind me of tampons) i don't think it works..

Again beautiful and very daring, avant-garde work with shadows in the fog, reflecitng what the artist does of course.
very filmic an powerful. Great compo,

Ahhhh...i love this...i love the mystery, the intrigue that the photograph arouses in me...i donot want to know its context...i donot want to know where it comes from or what it leads to...suspended in my own imagination...this photograph is a perfect example of innovative creative work, imho.
take care peter,
