As part of the recent Japan Alps Art Festival in the northwestern Nagano prefecture of Japan, Australian artist James Tapscott was commissioned to install a site-specific work, which he titled Arc Zero – Nimbus, a ring of mist that encircles a bridge leading guests to the grounds of Hotokizaki Kanon-ji, a local Buddhist Temple.

With mist sourced from the local river water, the installation explores the journey of melting snow to water, down the mountain, processed by the land, and back up again as evaporated mist.

The steel ring includes LED strips and is clad in laser-cut acrylic mirror, to better camouflage into the environment. At day, the mist produces produces rainbows and refracts the natural light, and as it gets darker, illumination lends an otherworldly mood to the piece.
