Mist effects were used within one of the most memorable art installations, the CODA “Party Wall”, exhibited at the annual Warm Up outdoor music series at PS1 MoMA in the summer of 2013. Koolfog misting systems were installed in order to create captivating mist effects throughout the organic installation.
The Koolfog team worked with the design team at CODA to integrate misting in key parts of the installation. Not only were the effects visually interesting, they also allowed visitors to stay cool in the New York heat. Koolfog’s Bryan Roe was also asked to share his thoughts in the newly published book compiled by CODA, titled This is Not a Wall.
“sometimes there will be different fog effects, and other times, there’ll be a more utilitarian-type purpose: straight up cooling. But with this type of thing you really have to look at it from an artistic standpoint…to give it the most visual depth where the fog is deployed we used this four-by-four square stainless steel manifold – that’s instead of just a line shaped manifold – and sat it right there, in this little archway slot underneath the upside-down W.”
The installation and mist effects were a huge hit, providing cooling to thousands of visitors during the summer concert series. It was an honor to work with the designers and other contributors to create such a “cool” project!
