Look Solutions’ Viper NT Adds Fog Effects To Artist Lisa Kirk’s Revolution! Installation

KirkArtist, activist and curator Lisa Kirk features fog effects created with Look Solutions’ Viper NT fog generator in her latest project, REVOLUTION!, a multimedia installation at P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center, an affiliate of the Museum of Modern Art located in Long Island City, NY. Consistently challenging white box aesthetics and institutional elitism with democratic verve, Kirk’s work has evolved as a series of scripted events and their ephemeral fall-out. Her projects have served to dramatize a shift in focus to the significance of social rituals.

REVOLUTION! began as a fragrance developed in collaboration with Symrise perfumers, based on interviews with journalists, activists, and political radicals who responded to the question, “What is the smell of revolution?� Using the resulting fragrance, which blends the odor of smoke, gasoline, tear gas, burnt rubber and decaying flesh, Kirk addresses the issue of contemporary luxury branding with interactive perfume displays, ad campaigns, a mock front-page story in The Baltimore Sun and the organization of the Revolutionary Knitting Circle. more

PES of Anonymous Content Presents… The Fireplace

The first in a series of Party DVDs from stop-motion master PES, The Fireplace is the first and only animated project of its kind to hit the market. No ordinary fireplace, PES’ version is made in true PES fashion…with pretzel logs and candy corn. With just these two simple items, PES has created the impression of a working fireplace that flickers, crackles and glows just like the real thing, but without the messy ashes to shovel.

PES got the idea for his fireplace from the original televised Yule Log, a concept which dates back to 1966 and has become something of a tradition in America. The original televised fireplace featured a loop of a real fireplace and has aired on Christmas day for 45 years. more
