ART: Foam by Kohei Nawa

Foam is a spectacular installation by Japanese artist Kohei Nawa that transforms a room into a magical scene, making it seem as though visitors are walking up on the clouds.

Unveiled at the Aichi Triennale 2013, the artist’s piece offers a dreamy landscape in an otherwise pitch-black room. The Osaka-born, Kyoto-based artist creatively transports viewers to an alternate universe without ever having to physically move them. Instead, he forces visitors to tap into their own imagination.

Experimenting with variating solutions of detergent, glycerin, and water, Nawa was able to produce the foamy material that is stiff enough to retain an upright position, yet still fragile enough to be manipulated and disintegrate.
