‘Smoke’ utilizes choreography, motion capture and cinematic lighting to portray the five minute duration of a cigarette.
‘Smoke’ evokes the pausing of time when thought becomes interior and nonlinear. In this timeless state, we are our most authentic, mysterious and unapproachable selves. What passes across our faces aren’t responses to events from outside, but from inside.
‘Smoke’ is an object of meditation.
The five minute seamless loop of ‘Smoke’ depicts the sensuality of a forbidden pleasure.
Smoke has been exhibited within my solo exhibition at the Johnson Museum of Art at Cornell University, among other venues.
