Connecticut's Philip Johnson Glass House is currently being surrounded by a thick cloud of smoke for the Veil installation. The artistic project comes of a collaboration with Fujiko Nakaya, an artist based in Japan.

Made predominantly from glass, the Philip Johnson landmark is currently celebrating its 65th anniversary. On an hourly basis, the Veil production releases fresh water in order to create the smoggy surroundings. Although the breathtaking structure usually provides a window to the outdoors, the smog will obscure its surroundings for those who get a chance step inside the abode.

Given its placement amid trees and grass, the sun's lighting changes the colors of Veil dependent on the time of day. Thus far, sunsets and sunrises have given way to streams of pink, blue and purple.
